Puppy Fun

15th May 2017

What a great weekend we had with a fantastic family full of fun, adults and children alike. The weather was pretty good and enabled the children to play with Widget and our new puppy 'Tipsy' in the garden. It was great as the puppy just played or slept! As I type she's trying to help! The children also had lots of fun in the Jacuzzi Hot Tub occasionally letting their parents in. Have a look at some of the smiling faces with Widget and Tipsy on the main blog page. Farming news: We have fields full of ewes and 'getting larger everyday' lambs. The rain which was so desperately needed arrived and has given everything a boost so the grass is now growing well. Talking to neighbouring farmers when we were herding their two cows, which had escaped onto our top field, the general feeling was that the spring crops will definitely have been affected by the lack of rain at the crucial time of planting but that's farming for you so the ever changing challenges keep coming.

Hares

30th April 2017

Lambing is nearly over. We have just a few ewes left in the building but the rest are out in the fields enjoying the grass and sunshine. It's been one of the better years for lambing with little rain and warmer nights. The lambs grow like mushrooms now and have their heads in the troughs with their mothers at feeding time. The spring crops have been planted and are already starting to show, however what we need now is warm rain to get everything off to a good start. The bank holiday weekend has been fun with a Stag party in residence. It's not often you spot a sumo wrestler bouncing about outside in the early hours. Possibly some sore heads this morning but a warm soak in the Jacuzzi Hot Tub will help to sort that out.

Lambing

15th March 2017

Lambing Live has begun at Tugford Farm. The sun is shining and the lambs are being born so the work begins in earnest now. We have 330 ewes, mainly Welsh Mules who are really pretty crossed with Suffolk and Texel tups. We've got all the Ewes in the buildings on straw beds with haylage and daily feeds. Lots of little pens built for the mums with their new lambs to go into so they can have extra care before being turned out onto fresh grass fields. The weather plays a hugely important role as wet weather is the main killer of baby lambs so lets hope it continues to be as nice as the last few days have been. Read on in the main blog -

Spring

27th February 2017

Despite the snow on the top of The Brown Clee hill this moorning Spring is knocking on the door. I've spotted primroses and the mile long verge of snowdrops down the road is changing to daffodils as I type. Quite a sight to see and planted many decades ago by a farm worker to a neighbouring farm to ours. His legacy is remembered every year as they multiply naturally becoming a carpet of white and then yellow. Read on for more farm updates in the blog -

Snowdrops

20th January 2017

The sun is shining and although frosty it is beautiful. Snowdrops have been spotted and spring is in the air. The days are getting longer and it's easily light until 5pm now. Wyndhams cousins at the other farm in Tugford have started lambing. Our sheep are still in the fields as they are not due to start until mid March but it's great to see the lambs if only inside the warm sheds at the moment. Now is the time to take advantage of low rates during the quiet season. You'll even get extra time in the Jacuzzi Hot Tub so send us an email and get your restful weekend organised.
