  Waste Not,Want Not

  1 Bob and Clara Darlington,who own and run a farm in the North of England,have alwayslooked for new ways of making money out of the produce they grow.Their SUCCESS began when theyestablished a shop on their farm,so that people could come and buy fresh vegetables directly fromthem.

  2 The business was an immediate SUCCESS,and soon scored top marks in a competition set upby the Farm Retail Association to find the best farm shop in the country.The Association's inspectorsfound the Darlingtons'shop offered excellent service and value for money as well as quality fruit andvegetable.

  3 Clara Darlington is a trained chef and,in addition to a range of home-grown foods andother local produce,she began offering a variety of prepared meals which she had made herself inthe farmhouse kitchen.A small cafe alongside the farm shop was soon added,with everything thatvisitors could taste on the menu also being for sale in the shop.

  4 Clara admits that starting the business was expensive,and she has worked very hard,butmaintains that if the product is good,the public recognize this and buy it."I aim to offer the highestquality to our customers,whether they come in for a loaf of bread,or take a whole dinner-partymenu.I take it as a compliment(恭维)if people take home one of my dishes to serve to their family and friends and get away with pretending they made it themselves."

  5 So it was that the couple realized that they had a surplus of misshapen or damaged vegetables grown on the farm which were unsuitable for selling in the shop.Clara,not wishing to see themget thrown away,decided to turn them into soup.

  6 The soup met with the immediate approval of customers to the shop and Clara now producesten different varieties.She spent much of the summer traveling up and down to London by rail,doing presentations of the soups.As a result,they are now served in first-class railway restaurant carsbelonging to three companies as well as being stocked by a number of high-class London stores.

  24.B [解析]该段讲到因为参与农场商店的竞赛而得到国家农场协会的认可,于是克拉拉除了自家农场种的食物和本地出产的农产品外,还开设了一家小咖啡馆顺便出售自己的农产品,农场的经营越来越专业,并得到行业的认可。

  25.E[解析]克拉拉的经营之道是为顾客提供最优质的服务,所以题目应为E,继续高标准的投资。

  26.F[解析]克拉拉夫妇俩把那些不适合在商店出售的畸形的或是被弄坏的剩余蔬菜做成蔬菜汤,因此该段题目应该是确保没有浪费。

  27.A[解析]文章第一段提到他们在农场建了一个商店,"'people could come and buyfresh'vegetables directl'y from them."他们可以直接购买新鲜蔬菜了。

  28.C [解析]第2段的第l句"…in addition t0 a range of}lome-grown foods and other local procluce,she began offering a variety of preparecl meals"提供了答案。

  29.D [解析]第3段第l句"…not wishing to see tlaem get tlarown away,decided t0 turnthem into soup"提供了答案。

  30.B [解析]最后一段第2句说到她夏天的大部分时间乘坐火车沿着伦敦来回旅行,以展示自己的蔬菜汤,所以应该选C,销售尽量多的产品。
