She has kept us waiting!

Here is our last little bull calf born on Saturday 16th May.  Isn't he a beauty?  I say last, we have one cow who is a little out of sync and not due for a couple of months, so she really will be the last!  Henry is back in with his wives and the cycle begins again.  Grass is really growing now but it feels wintry!  Heavy showers today but it feels warm in the sun when it is allowed to come through.

We are busy trying to get on top of the thistles and nettles on the farm, we know this isn't going to be an instant win but it is satisfying to already see some difference in the fields where we are managing them.

Open Farm Sunday on the 7th June, please come and join us!  Tractor and trailer rides (weather depending), sheep shearing and lots more, plus delicious local refreshments for sale.

More soon

Camilla, Roly, Molly, Freddie, Boris and Belle
