Back for another year…

happynewyear…it’s been rather quiet – ok, totally quiet – on this blog for the last week or so. I took a few long-awaited days off from blogging and working over the Christmas holidays. Mostly it was to pack and get organized for our big move this week, but also just to take a step back, recharge, rejuvenate and start to think about the year ahead.

It’s a time of upheaval and change in agriculture – just ask anyone in the livestock or horticulture sectors who’s been struggling to keep a farming business going recently – but also one of new opportunity and change. Here, I’m thinking of emerging markets for bioproducts and functional foods, or the new possibilities for growing so-called “ethnic” vegetables, for example.

Last year was an exciting one for anyone following food and farming to any extent and I’m looking forward to covering many interesting stories and issues in the months to come.

Happy New Year – and may 2010 be a good one for all!
