Spring brings frenetic activity and new life everywhere.
The beef cattle will start calving, the ewes will be lambing and our tree-roosting chickens will be finding nooks in the barns to lay their eggs and go broody.
The piglets born in late winter will be growing fast, playing tag around the trees in the orchard, chasing the chickens and generally being very entertaining! Those lucky people who have booked weaners will soon have their little pigs running around their ankles in their new homes.
More beef boxes will be ready for those who ordered our delicious slow matured grass-fed beef.
The forest garden will be coming back to life and this is when I need to spend time doing a bit of maintenance…. let’s hope I get the time this year as it’s currently a bit of a jungle!
We’ll be sowing seeds by the moon calendar, checking tree-ties and rabbit guards on our winter planting and generally rushing around chasing our tails but still finding time to welcome visitors and show people around.
