On the Farm

Thomas has been sorting some things out outside with the fields and animals.

Because we are organic we have got weeds like thistles and nettles growing in our fields and of course the cows don’t eat these plants. So when a field has been grazed and the grass is short, we go over the field with a machine to cut off all the weeds to stop them from going to seed and spreading. Thomas has been doing this over the last week and the fields look so much better!

We’ve also sorted out some of our young stock. We had quite a large group of young animals that we separated into 2 smaller groups, since the amount of grass available has changed. We moved some younger heifers to a field further away from the farm to graze and we’ve kept a group of slightly older ones nearby.

The ducklings that hatched nearly 4 weeks ago are doing very well. They have grown a lot and we will soon give them a bigger enclosure.
