Trial & Error

So today was even more exciting than yesterday:

Day Two of our first formal product trial, at Food Centre Wales.  We were up at the crack of dawn & Tony bustled through the milking whilst I prepared everything we needed to take with us.  We spent the majority of the day experimenting, which was absolutely fascinating, not to mention a great deal of fun.  After yesterday’s concerns that we’d got a few crucial things wrong during pasteurisation we discovered we needn’t have worried; all went far better than we’d anticipated & has left us itching to get our parlour & process rooms up & running so we can get into production as soon as possible.  Every moment that ticks by now, feels like a moment wasted….  And whilst a couple of today’s experimental batches probably won’t amount to much once they’ve matured, at least we’ve had a go & can build on these early efforts.  But in terms of initial, textural impression, we hope we’re on to a couple of real winners….

The icing on the cake was sitting on the doorstep when we arrived home: several cases of packaging, back from the printers at last.  It looks great – all we need to do now, is fill it – and as soon as possible!
