DVD: Reaching Back to the Past - The Work of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust (RBST)
The Rare Breeds Survival Trust’s Annual Show and Sale is the main event for the RBST and is a showcase for many quality domestic rare breeds.
Held each September in Warwickshire, England this is an opportunity to see some of the finest genetic lines of domestic rare breeds available, including cattle, sheep, pigs and poultry.
With the help of Lawrence Alderson and his staff, this video explores the work of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust, their success in rebuilding some of the rare breeds from the brink of extinction, their work with the Rare Breeds Meat Marketing Scheme and their involvement in many other areas.
We also visit the Temple Newsam Estate the world’s largest rare breeds farm. We look at one of the few remaining Red Poll dairy herds and then travel to David Lishman’s traditional butcher’s shop, in Ilkley, Yorkshire.
