Farmer Percy is busy on the farm as May is underway!
We’ve had a mixed spring in terms of weather (hot, cold and everything in between), and we’ve also had a busy season so far with lots of lambs and calves arriving and looking very cute.
Farmer Percy has been out with his tractor and the crops are doing well. The lovely yellow flowers of the crop Oil Seed Rape are now showing in the fields and create a welcome blaze of colour in the fields.
The cows are now in the fields enjoying the fresh spring pastures and our Belted Galloways have all calved successfully.
Ear tags are soon attached so we know which calf belong to which cow and there’s no mix ups!
You can tell it is spring when little fluffy ducklings appear and as we’ve got several adult ducks that love our pond, we were delighted to see a whole clutch of babies.
Our two sows are getting ready for their little ones and will be farrowing soon. We’ll keep you updated.
We’ll keep you updated as to Farmer Percy’s exploits soon!
