Busy times ahead for the boys...
http://www.camillaandroly.co.uk/be-a-shepherd Being a 'shepherd for the day' with us happens all year round but we do tend to get busy during lambing.
We put the raddles on the rams a few days ahead of them going in with the ewes to make sure they are fitting comfortably. They are due to go in on Saturday afternoon and it is always funny to see them getting busy straightaway!
We were at Headington farmers market for the first time last Friday and it was really lovely meeting some new customers there. Thank you for making us feel so welcome. We really enjoyed it and will be there again next Friday 26th October. This week is a busy market week for us too, Wallingford yesterday, Oxford tomorrow and Abingdon on Friday. Our neighbours Mark and Jane Cooper (Coopers Oxford Pork www.coopersoxfordpork.co.uk) will also be selling our lamb at Sandford on Thames community market www.talkingshopsandford.wordpress.com on Saturday and finally, the South Oxford market on Sunday morning is a new weekly market, and we shall be there! www.southoxfordfarmersmarket.org.uk
We look forward to seeing you.
Camilla, Roly, Molly, Boris and Belle
