Here at the Greenwich Maritime Institute we like to keep abreast of moments in all industries that can effect our work from any angles. We get involved in various projects, very recently the TourFish conference , a very successful event linking together Food, Fisheries and Tourism looking at new opportunities for sustainable development.
From this we have been looking at the food industry and we have come across the story of Stephen Hook and his film The Moo Man.
The remarkable story of a maverick farmer and his unruly cows, filmed over four years on the marshes of the Pevensey Levels.
In an attempt to save his family farm, Stephen Hook decides to turn his back on the cost cutting dairies and supermarkets, and instead stay small and keep his close relationship with the herd.
However farmer Hook’s plans to save the farm do not always go down well with his 55 spirited cows. The result is a laugh-out-loud, emotional roller-coaster of a journey.
If you would like to see this film there is a special screening being held on Wednesday 2nd July at 18:30 at European Commission followed by a reception.
Organic milk refreshments will be served at the event!
