Cusgarne Apple Pressing

I returned to Cusgarne Farm last week to record some film footage and an interview with Greg and I managed to catch their annual apple pressing! They make and sell pressed apple juice from their own orchards, and I can honestly say after sampling some freshly pressed that afternoon that its some of the best I've had! Here are some stills from the footage I captured which show part of process;

Carrot Portraits

So here's some shots from yesterday's shoot in the studio. I'm not all that used to shooting in a studio setup and I've got a lot to learn. I am looking at comparing the products sold in supermarkets, and those sold from Cusgarne Farm's shop. So here are some of the more weird and wonderful looking carrots that wouldn't have made it to the supermarket shelves but are just as tasty, if not more!

Cusgarne Farm

So here starts a new year and a new project! I'm looking at organic farming and today was my first shoot. Over the summer I visited Cusgarne Organic Farm, a local family run farm between Falmouth and Truro. They grow fruit and veggies (pretty much every type you've ever heard of and quite a few you haven't!), keep a herd of beef cattle and about 100 chickens. Here's my first selection from today;

It was pretty great to be out shooting again and I'm excited for what this project holds in store!
