The rain has really brought on the field mushrooms!

We are off to the Edenbridge & Oxted Show this weekend to show our Jacob Lambs so training them to walk on a halter has commenced.
They are not doing too badly – none of them have played dead or bounced about like Zebedee (yet!)!

Our first batch of pork boxes went out today & we think they look pretty good!
Our next batch will be ready on 7th September so if you would like to order one (Β£80 per quarter pig – these ones averaged about 13kg + approx 1kg bacon to come) please PM.
Oops – forgot to mention the box also includes bacon (which takes an extra week or so which is why it’s not in the photo!)

Are you able to do these without the single-use plastic Albans Barnyard? (Would be happy to supply tupperware etc)

We went on a shopping spree at the Jacob Sheep Society sale at Worcester yesterday – we now are the proud owners of a ram lamb (big enough to tup our ewes this year) & two new shearlings! See MoreSee Less

Wow!! πŸ€—

Very handsome. What is a Shearling? It sounds like something out of a horror film!

Spotted these wasps on broad leaved helleborine that’s appeared near the garden – never seen them attracted to a flowering plant like this before!
Apparently some species of wasp and bee that are attracted to Broad-leaved Helleborines have been noted as becoming ‘intoxicated’ after visiting these orchids for nectar – it appears that the flowers can contain a kind of alcohol as a result of a fungus! The bees like it so much, they come back for more, ensuring the flower is pollinated.

Have you got power?

We let the sheep & lambs into our pond field last night – they ignored the fresh new grass & went straight for a nibble of the hedge! They should be able to keep cool today. See MoreSee Less

We had a day away from the farm yesterday but plenty of work was still going on – another stretch of fencing is being replaced – cows are very tough on fences!
PS We were having fun flying with an old friend!

Did you use a drone??

The hay is in! Got home yesterday to find that it had not only been rowed up but baled & wrapped too – just finishing the stacking today. It’s a good crop & should be enough to feed the cattle all through the winter. See MoreSee Less

We did a hive inspection today – three out of four hives (which include the two swarms we had) are doing well but not sure about the fourth. There’s no honey to spare yet – all this rain has kept them indoors too!🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🍯 See MoreSee Less

Guessing that there is time for them to recover?

Your honey is the best!

Ok – after consulting the vet we decided not to wait any longer (she’s 2 & a half weeks overdue) so cow no.8 has now been induced – hopefully we should see her calf in 36-72 hours! Fingers crossed🀞 See MoreSee Less
