Bitish heat wave to continue!
It's hot hot work but Wyndham and Stuart have been really busy harvesting the hay and haylage and sorting sheep. All the stock find as much shelter from the heat of the day as possible and thanks to the abundance of trees on the farm they are able to do this.
Widget and Big Bill are too tired to cause much trouble at the moment and even the hound puppies prefer to keep their playfulness until the evenings.
Philip is painting his way through the house having fininshed uni but not starting his new job until September so everywhere is getting a spring clean.
There is never and idle moment here unless you are a guest!
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.
