Sorry, it has a while since my last message but life seems to speed up gradually over the summer and before you know it the clocks have gone back – just in the nick of time. A lot has gone on so I’m not sure where to start…
We finally finished combining on October 14th, not the latest on record but a close 2nd. This has meant that autumn planting was running a bit late but Simon and his dad have been working hard cultivating fields and drilling winter wheat and have just about caught up – there is just one field left to do.
The tups are now in with the main flock and the cattle and pigs are still out seeing as it has finally dried up, they’ve been enjoying the sunshine over the last few days.
The “Shearing Shed” (old shop) has had a busy summer and is still booked out at weekends, we have had some lovely comments from guests and feel that this was the right thing to do with the space. Having the shop back up by the house has made it easier to manage and I hope that the new opening times have not caused too much inconvenience – we are always happy to open up out of hours, just give us a call first to make sure we are here.
We have plenty of frozen lamb, beef and pork and I have re-stocked the bargain freezer this week so why not pop in and pick up a good deal!
Christmas order form out soon – watch this space!
