Well, we asked for rain…

…and sometimes you get what you ask for, and then some. We were disappointed to see the forecast but on the other hand, the country was so desparate for a good soaking it was quite apt that it should bucket down on Open Farm Sunday. Despite the rain we had a good turnout, more than 130 came to look around the new cutting room, see the sheep shearing and the Glamrock piglets followed by a hotdog and a cream tea. Only one hardy group actually did the farm walk as far as we know, watch this space as we will open it up again in the next month or so when the weather looks a bit more settled. Caroline Drummond, LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming) Cheif Executive popped in to see us along with 3 delegates from the Ulster Farmers’ Union; John Thompson (UFU President), Taryn Carlton and Kate Cairns. They are hoping to host a similar event in Northern Ireland in the summer, let’s hope thay have better weather than we did! Thanks to all our helpers on the day who needed a good hot bath to warm up again when they got home.
