I am sure, like us, you are enjoying the warm sunny days, making life in lock down more enjoyable. Although farmers and gardeners are now desperate for rain, sorry to all of you who like wall to wall sunshine! From fields that were so water logged before lambing, the ground is now so hard and dry, the dew ponds have dried up and the sheep and lambs are finding a shady spot waiting to loose their woolly jumpers come shearing day, in early June. It is so unfair this year with all the gorgeous weather that we all have to stay at home. The good news is, that according to the government guide lines we may be allowed to open and welcome guests back again in early July, if all goes to plan. Fingers crossed!!
In the meantime enjoy the sun (pray for a bit of rain at night) and continue to stay safe and well. ... See MoreSee Less
We hope everyone is staying well and adapting to the unusual times. The lambs are starting to grow out in the fields and wild flowers are now in abundance as we walk on the farm. There are numerous ones to be found in our mature wood, we hope to try and introduce some wild flowers to our most recent woodland, near the shepherd huts, it is now 10 years old. One of our favourite wild flowers out at the moment is lady Smock, hopefully you can enjoy, and identify the wild flowers in the coming months. ... See MoreSee Less
