Autumn Watch at Tugford
It is the sunniest of days here today in Tugford but the cooler nights are an indication of the coming cooler weather they say is on it's way. Wyndham has about 40 acres of wheat left to plant and so he is very busy from dawn to dusk trying to get it done before the rain comes.
Tonight is Tugfords' Harvest Festival in St Catherines Church and so ourselves and some of our resident guests will be gathering to sing in the harvest later this evening.
Widget and Big Bill are extremely well, however, Widget is on house arrest from Monday to Friday, 9.00am to 5.00pm to stop her from visiting the local builders working down the road. I don't think they are employed to throw sticks and balls for Widget even though she clearly thinks differently!
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.
