Weekly update 14/08/17

Seasonal fruit and veg

The week commencing Monday 14th August we have the following available.

  • Cucumbers
  • New potatoes
  • Small tomatoes (cherry and baby plum)
  • Large tomatoes
  • plums
  • Spinach
  • Courgettes (only a small amount)
  • Raspberries (weather depending*)

For quantities and prices please see our Seasonal page for more information.

* It will have to be dry for us to pick raspberries because they do not keep if they are wet. If you like to order raspberries for delivery please ensure your order will be over £8 without the raspberries or notify us of an alternative product if raspberries aren’t available.

On the Farm

This week we had 5 of our cows calve. We’ve got 3 bull calves and 2 heifer calves. We’ll rear the bull calves for meat and the 2 heifer will stay on the farm for milk production.

They’re all doing very well!

 

We’ve also managed to make some more silage. We nearly have enough to get the cows through the winter. We’ve got a couple more fields of grass to cut, so as soon as the weather is fit we’ll be silaging again.
