Just on two years ago, Michelle at Farmers Mutual called asking if Lovely Grub could do their corporate catering at the regional finals of their Young Farmer of the Year competition in Timaru.

It was very late notice and we were due to fly out to London on the Monday but the lady sounded really nice. She was worried that we would have to supply a meal in their marquee on a site without power. I explained that that was no problem as we have generators on the truck so the deal was done.

Well, we had been on site since early morning doing morning tea, preparing for dinner, when in to the truck came Radar. Like a breath of fresh air. He explained he was comparing the days proceedings and chatted for half an hour or so before commencing his work.

From helping out Michelle briefly for that day in Timaru we have catered for two of the three southern regional finals this year. At each, we have resumed our friendship with Radar. A lovely trip to Roxborough and one to Methven. Its great to support Farmers Mutual who are in turn supporting our rural community where you meet the nicest of people in the nicest of places. Keep up the good work Farmers Mutual.
