Local Brightwalton based farmer Russell Kilvington has been convicted of animal welfare issues and for passing off meat from an Essex farm as Royal Berkshire Pork. This is clearly disappointing and embarrassing for the farming community in West Berkshire. As part of our community here I cannot defend their actions leading up to this situation, but I can say that they are great people to know – warm, friendly with great kids. I do hope that they can treat this as a positive learning experience and can move on.
“I think that there is a very close connection between humility and patience. Humility involves having the capacity to take a more confrontational stance, having the capacity to retaliate if you wish, yet deliberately deciding not to do so. That is what I would call genuine humility.”, His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
