RURAL HONESTY SHOP CLOSES BECAUSE OF DISHONESTY

RURAL HONESTY SHOP CLOSES BECAUSE OF DISHONESTY

An award-winning turkey farmer has closed his rural honesty shop – after a recent spate of DISHONESTY.

Chris Rumming, 36, sold eggs and other fresh produce from a trailer parked outside his farm and relied on customers to leave the correct money in a cash tin.

But a recent series of thefts have forced him to close the ‘Eggs and ‘Stuff’ shop at Lydiard Turkey Farm near Swindon, Wilts.

Chris said: “It saddens me greatly that in the past two weeks I have had all my stock stolen on two occasions and on one occasion it has been vandalised.

“I have decided that if someone is going to regularly steal everything I will have to stop.”

The farmer and his wife Lindsay, who keep sheep and turkeys, used the modest profit from the honesty shop for holiday spending money.

He said: “It’s hard enough try to make a living from farming and this feels like a kick in the teeth.

“I will now replace the stock for a sign thanking my customers and explaining why it has had to end.”
