All is calm after Christmas. The farm is quiet in anticipation of lambing. The cows and calves and ewes are brought in from the fields into the barns for over-wintering.We start lambing at the end of February and it lasts for about 5 weeks – join us for a LAMBING WEEKEND – dinner on the house in exchange for your help lambing.
This time of year makes farming all worthwhile
Very busy preparing sheep for the DEVON COUNTY SHOW .
The harvest is in, the lambs are growing fast and we start selling as many as possible. All the lambs have been weaned and October is D Day for the rams – in they go and the cycle starts all over again.
We start to buy in day old chicks, turkeys and geese in preparation for Christmas .

The clocks go back but everything is in swing for preparing for Christmas. We attend local farmers markets and craft fairs with all of our woollen goods and trade is brisk for farm produce. Look at our superb range of goods for sale .
