Apologies for my lack of blog posts recently, I have now updated to the latest version of my blogging software so you should now hear more from me! I’d like to show you some pictures of the snow that we had here throughout December / January. The photo on the left is of Meadow Cottage and the photo on the right is taken from the drive looking up at the farm towards Meadow Cottage. Our visitors really loved the sledging!!
We have recently been looking for ways to go green and after watching a dvd called the age of stupid, (which I urge everyone to watch) this prompted us to look into renewable energy sources further in order to reduce our carbon footprint. We are thinking of applying for a micro wind generator system, and maybe also solar panels. We will be writing about the project on the blog below. http://www.powerpredictorreview.com Please take a look, you can also subscribe to the newsletter.
On Sunday Jen spent all day baking various cupcakes, including white chocolate butterfly cakes and some chocolate cola bottle iced cakes. They tasted delicious and sold well in the tea shop!
On Saturday we had 30 cyclists in for lunch after cycling all the way from Chester, and all made it back for the coach at 5pm – quite an achievement! Visit their website here: http://www.chestertri.org.uk
We have had a extremely busy 4 weeks as baby lambs were born thick and fast! 750 sheep have lambed in the past few weeks, with 50 left to give birth. We would like to thank our friends and family for the help we’ve had over the last few weeks and we will be looking forward to a rest once the lambing season is over.
We welcomed two new residents to the farm on Monday, two baby ducklings! They are Welsh Harlequinn ducklings and are about 4 weeks old. At the moment they are living inside to keep them warm whilst they are young, and once they are old enough we will introduce them to their new home on our pond.
As you know in the last few weeks we have experienced a lot of snow and I thought i’d share with you some photos of the farm in the snow. We also had our first lambs born two days ago! Although these were earlier than expected – a tup must of escaped! If you book a stay in April you’ll see lots of new born lambs!
