As we enter a cold wet and windy Autumn on the Joseph Norton farm we're as busy as ever!
After a fantastic first harvest we managed to supply the school kitchens with onions, potatoes, carrots, tomatoes and peppers. The land has now been cleared for winter and our thoughts have moved to improving the site and helping our local wildlife. Toads, frogs and squirrels have all benefited from our recent habitat creation around the pond. The pig pen is being cleared and grass sown as we prepare for a our curly tailed visitors in the new year.
It's not all work though as Gordon and Billy have had many walks around school and the woods. They particularly enjoyed eating the fallen oak leaves and brambles as we hunt for fungus, wildlife and conkers!
