On the Farm
This week I’ve been butchering meat and Thomas and Will have been sorting out our muck store. Because it’s been wet and the temperature has been above freezing, we’ve not been able to get our muck store emptied, as the fields are too soft to drive on with a heavy tractor and muck spreader.
They have made a temporary muck store in the yard so we now have a bit more storage space since cows poo for England!
Since we get less frosty weather and an increased amount of wet weather nowadays, being unable to spread muck on the land regularly is a recurrent problem. For this reason we are looking into extending our muck store so we can store our muck for a longer period of time before the store needs to be emptied.

Fresh Beef
We’ve finished cutting all of the beef, so we now have fresh beef available again. We will start freezing the meat soon, so if you want it fresh you’ll have to be quick! Please see our meat page for all cuts and prices.
