No milk today – Crail Food History

While having a chat on Twitter about food supplies in Crail yesterday morning, this photograph was sent to our Crail Food Festival twitter account by Tom Orr (who goes by the Twitter name of @cyclingmollie). He supplied us with further detail that the milk “Proudly claimed to be from a Brucelosis and Tuberclin tested herd.  Unpasteurised, it tasted strongly of turnips in winter.”

Do you know anything of the history of the Ribbonfield Dairy, or the farmer D. Morris?

Tom also suggested that we read a book called “Footsteps in the Furrows” by Andrew Arbuckle.

When researching ideas for the 2012 Crail Food Festival by visiting the Berwick Food Festival in September, we saw an interesting exhibition there about their food history. Could this milk bottle be the beginning of a historical strand for our next event?  We’re on the look out for ideas and volunteers to put them into action. Can you help?

Contact us at: info@crailfoodfest.co.uk if you have a story to tell about this or would like to help.
