On the Farm

This week we got a lot of straw in which will be used for bedding up pens and also to feed the cows.

We’ve had 1 other cow calve called “Bella”. She had a Jersey heifer calf so that’s fantastic news.

We have a bumper crop of tomatoes at the moment. A top tip is if you buy the large ones now and after taking the green tops off, put them in the freezer.  When you next want to use some tomatoes for cooking, instead of opening a tin just get some of the frozen tomatoes out of the freezer, run them under hot water for a second or two and the skin will just slide off.  These can then be in a pan to simmer down to reduce the amount of liquid and hey presto you have the same as a tin of tomatoes, only these are organic and grown in soil unlike the ones out of a tin.  Full of flavour and absolutely delicious!
