On the farm
We’ve had a busy week with cows calving. We now have 5 new editions and 3 more to go!
Out of the 5 calves we have 3 heifers, so that’s quite good!
All calves are doing very well.

There is also more progress in the farm shop. The shopfloor is currently being put down including the cold rooms, butchery and packing areas. We should be able to be back working in there by the end of next week and hopefully it will only be a couple of weeks away before the shop is officially open! We’ll of course keep you posted.

Price changes from 1st April 2017
Unfortunately we are having to increase the price of some of our products due to the increase in wages, packaging cost and animal feed.

* We are aware that the price of the hen eggs have gone up significantly.
We understand this is as a result of a Russian ship of non-Organic feed trying to be passed off as Organic. This caused a stop on movement on some Organic feed throughout Europe. This has all meant that Organic feed prices increased by over 10% within a couple of weeks, on top of the over 5% increase over the previous 12 months.
Whilst our egg prices have increased significantly, they are still below supermarket Organic prices.
