COUNTY Durham farm shops involved in a campaign to highlight farm food businesses will be using sales tomorrow to raise money for Haiti.

Bradley Burn Farm Shop, near Wolsingham, and Broom House Farm, near Witton Gilbert, will be using sales of their bacon sandwiches to raise money for the DEC Haiti Appeal.

The move coincides with Farmhouse Breakfast Week which promotes the benefits of a good breakfast and is supported by members of the Farmers’ Retail and Markets Association North-East.

Christopher Stevenson, from Bradley Burn Farm Shop, said: “At this time of year we are normally busy offering tastings of our bacon and sausages.

“However, in light of such a terrible tragedy, we wanted to use the week to do something for the people of Haiti.”

Broom House Farm owner Jane Gray said: “Farmhouse Breakfast Week gives us the chance to showcase the extensive range of farm produce in the North-East.

“But as farmers, we wanted to use this established campaign in a slightly different way and help draw attention to what will be very long-term needs in Haiti.

“We cannot send our fresh produce, but we did want to help in some way if we possibly could.”
