January 2017 – The latest from our family farm

What a difference a year makes!

Last winter was so tough for the animals and for us trying to look after them. It was so ,so wet. This year has been kind, the fields are dry (ish) and the grass has been growing.

Heidi our oldest cow, who will be 19 in May, had a little girl on Friday 13th. She is now going into retirement.

The sheep have been scanned, though the numbers due are disappointing. There are several factors which may cause this, trying to establish which one is not so easy. At least we won’t have 44 on the bottle ,like we did last year.

Winston, our pet pig, has now become the proud father of several piglets, having decided to keep him as our ‘stud ‘boar.

 

It is always so lovely to receive emails such as the one below, from a happy Christmas order customer.

 

”We would just like to say that the pork and beef we received was absolutely fantastic. We cooked the beef on the barbeque and ate it for days afterwards-the flavours were amazing. The pork gave such lovely crackling and was soooo tasty. The best buy this Christmas. Thank you so much for producing what must be very happy animals and to give us such fantastic tasting meat”
