Made our first cut silage this week – a fairly light cut but some good stuff which the sheep will enjoy.
We’ve also been busy with farmers’ markets this week – the regular one in Hereford on Thursday and the monthly Leominster one today. These markets are a lot of work to prepare for but I love doing them and getting the direct feedback from our customers. In Leominster today we also had some of our sheep! It’s the Leominster Festival and the theme this year is sheep so who better to ask…. I did wonder last night if this was such a great idea – trying to find a presentable ewe with a couple of decent lambs to put on show but it’s been a great day with lots of interest and fantastic weather.
We’ll take a bit of a breather this evening with supper with some friends and then a BBQ at a local farm but tomorrow, I need to get some fertiliser on the silage ground for the next cut and patch up a bit of thin reseeded grass. Guess who won’t be getting Sunday off!
