On the farm
This Wednesday the cows were outside during the day for the last time this year. As it’s turned wet and a lot colder there is no grass left for them to eat, so they are now staying inside until spring. We’re feeding them on silage, which is basically pickled grass.

You might notice a slight change in the flavour of the milk due to the change in the cows diet.

We’ve also had a heifer (cow that hasn’t had any calves yet) give birth to a female calf which is fantastic. There is a short video below.

Work has begun on the “farm shop” area. We’re currently digging out the old floor so we can insulate and concrete it. This will hopefully happen within the next couple of weeks. It’s really taking shape now!
