Video: Follow a meal from
the field to the plate

by Chris Denham

With issues such as food miles and organic farming growing in
importance, a small operation in Kent is showing how short a local
food chain can be.

There are a myriad of farms across the county offering meat
boxes and farm shops, and Chilton Farm has gone one better and
bought its own abattoir in Aldington.

Its small scale means the abattoir is a long way from the
industrial feel of a major slaughterhouse - and with a vet on the
premises the animals are taken care of.

But the journey starts 25 miles away in Alkham, where the farm
is based.
