How Advertising Works in Chippenham #9


  1. Start a very successful farm shop and cafe business on the outskirts of Chippenham
  2. Ensure you have a wide range of organic goods with which to tempt your customers
  3. Constantly change your stock so that only the freshest of items are on display
  4. Wait for a blogger with a camera to notice you've not been quite so good at changing your signage
  5. Et voila!

I think the squirrels must have taken them, just like they have from the hazel trees at the side of the house ;)

  1. Given that some people are hazy at recognising exotic vegetables etc I hope they don't go away with two artichokes to make a hazelnut cake!

  2. Those pesky squirrels, they must be hoarding them for the winter!

    I rather like the farm shop, although it's a little on the pricey side. I've been amazed and very pleased for them as their business seems to have gone from strength to strength. Actually I did use to try and do a full shop there every now and then and the price wasn't much different to Sainsbugs because I couldn't put all the ususal rubbish I would buy in a supermarket in my basket, so I ended up with a much healthier weeks shopping!

  4. EG - you've got a point there - perhaps I need to go back and put up a warning!

    RO - we can walk there and last week quite a lot of their fruit and veg was cheaper than the supermarket. However, we blew our savings on tea and cake!

    Angie - that's very kind of you - I think you're my furthest away regular reader :)

    Joanne, Debbi and Anna - ;)
