SpringtimeThe 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.

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.
