On the Farm

We’ve been busy gearing up for the Fair Food Dinner this coming weekend – it’s set to be fun, but has sold out, so, if you missed out, see you next year.

With the ground drying out a little we’ve been able to get up to the paddocks and do Spring renovations on the chicken houses, along with rotary hoeing in the market garden. We even managed to get the first of the potatoes in.

We are watching the garlic get larger and larger and start to bulb up and hope to be harvesting in the next month or so.

We had a lovely group of new farmers to the first in our Growing Small Farm Business Series last Sunday on Farm Operations – with the marketing and finance sessions coming up in the next few weeks. If you didn’t get to the first session, you can still join in for the marketing and finance ones. Book now.

Enjoy the sun!
