The sheep have been shawn and are much happier now that they have their summer clothes on. The grass is growing fast at last and hopefully we will be able to harvest our first crop of haylage soon.
Widget and Big Bill have been busy barking their hellos to all the passing walkers and cyclists and the hound puppies are finding that now they are older they can walk further before flopping down for a rest.
Those of you who were aware of my contstant training for the coast to coast cyle ride will be pleased to hear that I completed it along with 6 friends. 130 miles over three days and lots of laughs! Have a look at the start and finish photos in the Photo Gallery.
Blog - the latest from Tugford Farm Accommodation in Shropshire...
Lambing time in beautiful Spring sunshine! It's been a blast up til now with great conditions to turn our new arrivals out on to fresh grass. The Curlews that nested last year and successfully raised 4 chicks are back. We're watching them to see if they choose the same spot, in the same field and will do what we did last year, put electric fencing around the area to stop Badgers and Foxes eating the eggs. We'll keep our fingers crossed and update you on their progress. We have our first equine visitors this week who have had to dodge the council laying super smart tarmac everywhere. We're going to be very posh in the Corvedale you know! Brexit is driving everyone nuts so we suggest you pack your bags and hide out here in our little corner of rural South Shropshire. Light the fire in Meal House and turn off those phones to totally relax - at least for a day or two. Give us a ring or email and come see Spring erupting in little Tugford.
