Surprise is an evening check where you find a cow that you’ve decided for various reasons definitely isn’t pregnant standing with her new born calf!
Welcome 3rd calf of the year & well done No10 for managing to show absolutely no sign of being pregnant at all (and having a calf with no trouble & no assistance required!)!!
Hopefully better photos to comeπŸ‚πŸ‚

This photo popped up in memories today – it’s our first ever calf – born 11 years ago today!
That calf is now the leader (and mother or grandmother!) of the whole herd.
Happy 11th Birthday number 1 ! πŸ‚πŸ‚

We now have this season’s honey available! It’s beautifully clear & pale so we think it’s probably mainly clover honey as our fields’ were white with clover flowers & the bees were loving it.
This is prizewinning honey as it won a ‘Commended’ at the Kent Show honey competition!
1lb jars are Β£8 and 1/2lb Β£4 – just message if you would like some. We only have a limited supply at the moment so be quick!🐝🍯🍯🐝

We’ve just made our hay (while the sun is shining of course!) & what a difference a year makes! Last year it rained & rained & we had the biggest bumper crop we have ever had (96 big bales) and the baler kept going until 2am to get it all in before the next rain. The field was then so wet it couldn’t be taken off and stacked for weeks! This year we had a horrendously cold & dry April & the grass just did not get going – this year the crop is probably the smallest we ever had (24 bales) & the ground is so hard it was baled, wrapped & stacked in about 3 hours! Luckily we were able to buy in a few extra bales, get them on the field, and have them wrapped at the same time as ours (thanks so much Nick for your help!) so we should have enough for winter. Just goes to show – no two years the same in farming!!!!πŸŒΎπŸŒžβ˜€οΈ See MoreSee Less
