Springtime

29th April 2014

The warm sunshine (between the showers) is turning every thing green or yellow (where the oil seed rape is growing). From the top of the Brown Clee Hill the patchwork of fields is becoming ever more interesting as farmers plant their spring crops and the trees and hedge rows burst into life. We have nearly finished lambing with the last few still in the building but the rest are out on the fields. We had a very busy two days drenching, injecting and checking all the ewes and lambs but we had extra help in the form of old friends Nick and Jane from Nottingham. It's been a long time since Nick did any farming but he was brilliant and between us, as they say 'many hands make light work' So a big 'Thank you' to them.

Spring Sunshine

9th April 2014

Easter is looming and we have lots of new and returning guests booked in. Widget is having a wonderful time at the moment being entertained by three little girls who don't seem to tire of throwing a tennis ball any more than Widget tires from fetching it. I rode baby horse, Coral, this morning in beautiful sunshine along the Jack Mytton Way and the Wenlock Edge. Just wonderful. I came across a walker who was just sat in the sunshine, leaning back on a big oak tree taking in his surroundings. There just heaven, days like these! Wyndham is ploughing the now dryer ground ready to plant beans and most of the ewes have now lambed. Only the hogs (young ewes) to go now. I spotted Cow Slips and one young Bluebell in the hedge row this morning. Spring is well and truly here.

Spring Lambs

17th March 2014

Spring has well and truly sprung with lambing in full swing. 350 Ewes either with or expecting their babies and wonderful dry, sunny weather to turn them out into. The grass is growing and the hedges are full of primroses, celandines and even the odd campion. Widget had a brief leading role as a Dolly Parton extra! Read on in the blog to find out how -

Well it might be raining non stop but we're still here and guests are ignoring all that weather whilst warming themselves by the log burner in Meal House. We've even had guests sitting in the hot tub with wooly hats on! 'Yes - you know who you are'! How have we managed on the farm? Well read on in the blog to find out.

Blog - the latest from Tugford Farm Accommodation in Shropshire...

Harvesting is over! The combine was brought home last night after a very testing end to the summer. The planting of next years crops now begins in haste before the ground gets too wet to work. The horses winter beds are down in the stables waiting for them to come in at night as soon as it drops too cold or wet and the logs are being loaded into the log shed ready for the log burner in Meal House and the farm house to keep us all warm. The Jacuzzi comes into its own during the winter months. It's the time I like to use it most. Everyone has suddenly started cooking roast dinners and puddings and the salad bowl is to be found at the back of the cupboard. We still have guests booked in with their horses enjoying the Autumnal colours and changing vista of the Brown Clee Hill and as long as you have your wellies or walking boots there's a host of fabulous walking out there. As we head towards Christmas our rates become such great value so why not grab a weekend away and curl up by that log burner in Meal House or jump in the Jacuzzi and watch the steam rise!
