New shed, new people, new trailer, new lots of stuff = awesome workday with so much done. What a great day with almost all members on site, recent members and a few first timers (who hopefully enjoyed it enough to come back) but we almost ran out of chairs at lunch time, I don’t think that’s ever happened before.
New wheat area
The farm has been asked to join the Sheffield Wheat Experiment which requires us to clear a small area and plant some wheat watch it grow and then make flour and bake bread from it.
We were fortunate to be given a very large shed in superb condition which we used to replace our most decayed shed - the turkey shed. Lucky turkeys whilst on the farm will enjoy our most luxurious accommodation. As keepers of the birds we will all enjoy being able to enter and leave the shed without fear of banging our heads or having to stoops whilst doing anything in there.
OK - it’s not new, it’s very old, but this is the most attention it’s received in a very long time. The old base was rotten and causing concern that its load could drop through the floor part way through a journey.
Elsewhere on the farm
We had a bumper harvest, planted out cabbage & chard seedlings. Did a lot of weeding and tidying up of plants.
