The show lambs are back home again now – they were supposed to be in isolation for a few days but they managed to squeeze through the gate! The boys are sorting out their pecking order again – it looks worse than it is & they have all settled down again now๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ™‚ See MoreSee Less

And here are the results! 1 first, 3 seconds, a third and a fourth. Really pleased as we were up against one of the biggest local flocks & the judge commented that heโ€™d been hard pressed to choose between us!๐Ÿฅ‡๐Ÿฅˆ๐Ÿฅ‰๐Ÿ See MoreSee Less

Today our lovely shearling ram affectionately known as BB or Barney’s Baby, left us for his new home – he’s off to a RBST (rare breed survival trust) farm www.churchfarmstowbardolph.co.uk – where he should have a great time helping to promote and protect the Jacob breed.๐Ÿ๐Ÿ See MoreSee Less

96 bales – hooray! Hopefully what we may have lost in quality due to the rain we have made up for in quantity!
The team are off trying to finish all their other hay before the rain so stacking will have to wait a while but we are just pleased it’s safely harvested.๐Ÿšœ๐ŸŒพ๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿ™‚

At last – the hay is finally baled & wrapped! The wrapper is actually still working at this very moment – it may be after midnight but rain is forecast for the weekend so it has to be done! See MoreSee Less

Well, today didn’t quite go to plan! The hay had been turned, dried and rowed & was all set for baling this evening when this happened. We had checked several forecasts and the chance of rain varied from 2% to 20% & just a bit of cloud. It went from steaming hot & hazy sun to thunder & lightening in about 5 minutes! Hey Ho, back to drying & turning again – the forecast (ha ha) is hot! hot! hot! so we will just have to try again!๐Ÿคžโ˜€๏ธโ˜€๏ธโ˜€๏ธ๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿšœ See MoreSee Less

I thought of you today and the hay. It was something, wasn't it?! Reassured still that the met office can't predict everything, but hope that you get to dry your hay xxx

Really unlucky, no rain in Sevenoaks apparently !

Oh no, ๐Ÿคžfor the next few days x

Could’ve done with that rain in Tonbridge – my garden is parched!

No rain here either!

Noooo how frustrating

Oh bad luck! Looks like we dodged it here in sunny Tenterden ๐ŸŒž

Hooray! At last the hay has been cut and is drying beautifully in the sun. (we were getting a bit worried that it would never happen with all the rain we’ve had lately!) and it looks like a great crop which is really needed after only getting about half our usual yield last year. Atm the forecast is for a weather window long enough to turn it a few times and bale & wrap๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž โ˜€๏ธโ˜€๏ธโ˜€๏ธ๐ŸŒพ๐ŸŒพ See MoreSee Less

The sheep are now back & enjoying the amazing grass that has grown while they have been away!๐Ÿ๐ŸŒพโ˜˜๏ธ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ๐ŸŒง๐ŸŒง๐ŸŒพ๐ŸŒพAfter a successful few weeks of grazing, the sheep have left Cinderhill!

They have made a great dent in the heathland, and we look forward to see what will be done in the next grazing season.

We want to thank everyone for their patience and consideration during the grazing period, and confirm that the heathland enclosure is now open again!
