Starting them young.....
Ely Food Festival last weekend was literally just up the road, so the Mini’s were keen to come with me…..so it ended up being a real family affair as both Mini Martinsens came along to ‘help’. I say ‘help’ because they certainly enjoyed all the goodies on offer at the show – copious ice creams, delicious Indian flatbreads [boy Martinsen adored them…], rocky road fudge etc! They spent all their money along the way for sure…..
I set up Breckland Orchard when they boy Martinsen was just two, and Little Miss Martinsen was 10 months old….so they’ve never known me do anything different.Breckland Orchard is 100% family owned and it was important that the Mini’s get to see what ‘Mummy’ does on a day to day basis.
So although it was a joy to have them with me for one day, not sure either or they could afford it on a long term basis….they’d be spending more than they were earning. Lots of time to teach them all about business!
