July and August are usually times when we can sit back and relax a little and fortunately this summer was no exception. It is beginning to feel that things are eventually getting back to normal.
Big Pig's piglets have all been sold; 6 have already gone off site and the remaining 4 will be leaving her soon. Whilst we will be sad to see them go, we are sure she is very relieved!
For the first time since the pandemic struck we will be attending Frome Cheese Show on Saturday 11 September. Due to restrictions we will not be taking as many animals as in the past but we are still looking forward to seeing old friends and introducing our Naked Necks chickens to the the public for the first time. They are almost as excited as we are!!!
We were delighted to welcome back our school age students at the beginning of September and the farm is buzzing with activity once again.
We had hoped to be able to welcome back the general public too; unfortunately this is still under constant review by the Trustees and hopefully may be possible before the end of the month. We will of course keep everyone posted.
In the meantime, take care and stay safe.
