My Blog has really gone to pot ......i can't blame anyone else, although now the Website is 'LIVE'....there is not the constant panic to update the blog all the time!
We have closed for two weeks, in order to do some building work. we have been really fortunate to receive funds to put in some disabled facilities. We are converting one of the toilets, and putting ramps and decking around the main building - already it looks so different (photos to follow!)
We also hope to get our 'woodworking' shed put up next week (another donation) and so will then have 3 main areas to work in when the weather's on the turn....like this week!
We have been adding to our stock of poultry... hopefully leading to an increase in egg production - and now have a fantastic selection of pure bred hens. One of the bantams hatched out her 11 chicks, and has just moved out to the field in her own hen with run. Unfortunately the quail have gone on strike, having been laying every day - (only one hen...and two males!)
We have a lot of news in our Autumn edition of the Newsletter, and lots going on between now and Christmas, so do have a look at our Website :- www.scrubditchcarefarm.org.uk
On SATURDAY 9 NOVEMBER, we are having a COMMUNITY APPLE JUICING DAY, here at the Care Farm - all details on the website...save your apples and come and join us!
We are located 4 miles north of Cirencester, between the villages of North Cerney, and Woodmancote. From A435 you take the turning towards Bagendon, go up past the Church to the T junction. Turn right towards Woodmancote and Scrubditch Farm is approximately 100 yards on the right. The Care Farm is situated down the drive, up the track on the left.
From A417, turn off at Perrotts Brook/Daglingworth, and proceed towards Perrotts Brook. Just before the A435, turn left towards Woodmancote. Go for approximately 1 1/2 miles and Scrubditch Farm is on the right, just past the Bagendon/North Cerney Cross Roads.
