Lots of bits’n’pieces going on at the farm during lockdown 2.0!
It’s been hard to try to work out which lockdown rules apply to the farm, we’re a community farm but not a farm, we’re a company but a not for profit one etc and so there is no definite category into which we fit. Therefore we’ve decided that regular work days cannot happen and we’ll only allow up to 3 households on site at any one time and they should all work in different areas of the farm.
While Covid prevents us from using the roundhouse for its intended purpose as a shelter for social gathering, lunches etc it seemed like a good time to clear everything out and spray some rather nasty woodworm treatment on the structural timbers.
As cunning as a fox
As if 2020 could not get any worse - Avian flu
So Avian flu has hit the UK again, and so we need to move all food and water supplies into the respective poultry sheds to help reduce contamiation by wild birds which might bring avian flu with them.
