HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OUR FOLLOWERS AND SUPPORTERS!
We have been really busy so far this year! Firstly, we have been having the path laid up to our new decking area (thank you to John and Gavin) and especially to the kind person who donated the paving slabs in Filkins...(photo to follow hopefully!) Next we were given an gardening shed from Debs and Paul (ex allotment) and have been giving it some TLC - it now has a lovely new roof, and is ready for a lick of paint - the shed will be our 'woodworking' area - so watch this space for lots of products this year!
Then ......the arrival of 'PERRY' the Oxford and Sandy Black Boar! He is stunning, and Sandy seems quite interested - we really hope she hurries up, as he's only on loan for 5 weeks! We also have two more weaners - so will have more pork available around May....(photos to follow hopefully)
I have a new phone, and of course am finding it impossible to work - it took me over a year to work the last one reasonably well - this is a 'touch screen' thing....nightmare! My last one bit the dust getting soaked in this horrendous weather we've been having!
Two more ram lambs are due to go off next week, so we will have some of that lovely Wiltshire Horn Lamb available in a couple of weeks time.
The students were all pleased to be back, and we have spent the first week, madly fencing off a section of the woodland to split the weaners up from Sandy and Perry! We are anxiously waiting to hear when the scanner man's coming ...should be within the next two weeks, to scan our 12 Ewes - great excitement!
2014 has started very wet and windy, but with lots of exciting projects on the go - let's hope we get some better weather soon!
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.
