On the Farm

Rain, wind, sun, repeat… it’s a bit hard to plan each week…

School Holidays have been a busy time at the farm shop and with the kids helping out around the farm. It seems we don’t get much time for a break though, other than the odd game of scrabble.

The grass is starting to grow which is making the animals happy, although the pigs still enjoy the nice wet ground to dig in.

We’ve started chipping out what little serrated tussock we have on the farm, mind you, it is still often up to the top of the gumboots with water.

Here’s to a warm Spring!
