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.

Nearly Christmas!

WOW - i can't believe that we are nearly at the end of another term!  So much has happened over the last few weeks....we had 'Harry the Hernia' our last weaner back - delicious sausages and now we've just taken delivery of 7.5 kilos of dry cured bacon!  We think that keeping him a couple of months longer has produced a lovely flavour - might have something to do with the wonderful apples that we have been feeding too!
Neville with his final 'wife'!
Helen showing Charlotte
how to stroke a pig!
'Neville' the ram has married all his ewes, so we are taking him home next week - fingers crossed, and we look forward to the scanning in January!  Thank you Adrian Andrews!
Dan hard at working putting
on the roofing felt! p.s he's a volunteer
not a student!

We had a very successful stall at the Cotswold Hunt Christmas Fair at Andoversford, and raised £250 selling produce, wreaths, bulbs and our Christmas Cards.

We were given a garden shed a few months ago, and have at last managed to clear the old pig nursery, and put up the shed!  It looks great - just a few finishing touches - and then we will have ourselves a 'woodworking' shed for the New Year.  We have also had a separate Duck Pen put up by the students this week - we are looking for some more ducks to build up our egg supplies?

our Stall at the Christmas Fair beautifully designed by
Penny and Gerry!
We are looking forward to showing some Trustees around this week, and then on Thursday, we have our end of term Christmas Lunch - something the students really look forward to - i wonder who Danny will dress up as this year....?!

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all our students, volunteers, followers, and supporters a very Happy Christmas, and look forward to catching up in the New Year.
