I'm not being off, but I genuinely can't read that webpage, the background is too dark so the text is illegible.  My computer has normal settings and I've not had that issue elsewhere.

Weekend charcuterie/pigkeeping courses run by women for women
Just out of curiosity, why single sex courses? Surely if it was advertised as "run by men, for men" there would be no end of complaints?   ??? ???

Hi Small plot, it was Rachels idea.  She feels its a usp, as the way she produces the cutting etc is women friendly. We have mixed courses later in the year as I felt we were cutting out a huge part of potential customers by aiming just at women.

The press release that has gone out about the courses.
