Save our badgers!

 Our business has now closed 
Thank you to all of our customers over the past few years.  It's been fun!  We hope you have enjoyed the products we've made.  Perhaps the shop will return again one day in the future.
Best wishes, Jonathan & Mike


This is a special plea for help to fight the tragic, cruel, needless killing of badgers in parts of the UK.


It is with great sadness that the killing of innocent badgers, a protected species, went ahead, fully authorised by the morally corrupt UK government.

The Wildlife Trusts (and other anti-cull groups) are vaccinating badgers to show the benefits it can have.

"The Wildlife Trusts believe that biosecurity and vaccination should be at the centre of efforts to tackle bovine tuberculosis (TB) rather than a badger cull.

Watch a badger vaccination filmIn the longer term cattle vaccination will have a vital role to play, but it is not yet available. However, a vaccine for badgers is available now and has the potential to help reduce bTB without the negative impacts of perturbation arising from a badger cull. A number of Wildlife Trusts are carrying out badger vaccination programmes, but they need your support. Each badger vaccine costs £20; every trap £100. Staff time to carry out the baiting of traps and injections is also a significant cost.

Vaccination of badgers helps to reduce the spread of the bovine TB. Recent studies have shown that vaccinating just one third of uninfected badgers in a set can help make unvaccinated cubs less likely to test positive for the disease."
