On the Farm

Has the rain gone? We’ve had a whopping 10 inches (250cm+) in the last 3 months. Much, much more than can be handled… but the sun has been out in the last week and the paddocks are starting to dry. This will be a challenging season for the cattle, sheep and pigs as they’ll struggle to keep up with the fast growing grasses.

The veggie beds are set to take off, with still more seedlings growing in the polytunnel. It’s pretty hot during the day though, so we’re rolling the sides up and busy working on fixing the shadehouse which the last season’s wind just about blew away… No doubt the weeds will be up just as quickly as the seedlings so we’ll need to be vigilant during the Spring.

We continue to have groups out for farm tours and workshops and just love having people on the farm learning more about what we do and how we do it everyday 😉
