It's been a busy start to the year on the farm, we are leaving winter behind us and getting ready for spring. We have been building fenced raised beds for this years growing, which will hopefully stop the goats nibbling at our crops when they are out and about playing around the farm. A cold frame has been built in the greenhouse for our tomato seedlings to grow and the grape vine has been pruned, we should have our first proper crop this year !
Our animals are enjoying the warmer temperatures and the chickens have begun laying their eggs again. We welcomed our newest addition to the farm family, Daphne the Duprasi (fat tailed gerbil) and she has gone down well with both staff and students.
Joey the cat had a 2 day adventure up a tree before doing his best pigeon impression and making a leap of faith, thankfully he was a very lucky cat and survived unscathed!
Of course we couldn't ignore pancake day and we did it the best way we know how, over an open fire in the fresh air. The farm is almost into the growing season and we're all looking forward to the next few months, bring on the sunshine.
