We have finally been able to get on with some jobs around the farm – Simon has finished drilling the spring crops and lambing is nearly over, just a few ewe-lambs left to go. The cattle are ready to go out, we’re just waiting for the grass to get growing bit more. Luckily we still have some hay and silage left from last year although we would like to keep some in store as we may not be in for bumper yields this year…
GREAT BRITISH BEEF WEEK: 21-28TH APRIL 2013
There is plenty of fresh, well hung, tasty beef in the shop this week in honour of GBBW. I know there seems to be a week for anything and everything but when there’s food involved it can only be a good thing!
This year Ladies in Beef (I am a member of the Gloucestershire branch) are joining forces with the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution, a charity which helps farming families in financial difficulty, particularly relevant after the atrocious lambing season experienced by some areas of the UK.
Various “Host a Roast” events are being held across the County with donations being made to the charity. For more information visit www.rabi.org.uk. We have donated a tasty bit of beef to the Star Bistro at Ullenwood for their St Georges Day menu, proceeds will go to RABI.
