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.

half term

Sadly we had to say good bye to Perry the Boar on that glorious Sunday just past!  It was a long process - starting with the loading (or not loading) in the morning....!  We didn't feed the pigs as normal - keeping the food out of reach thinking he would just follow us into the trailer - not a bit of it...Sandy thought the food was lovely and went straight onto the trailer - Perry however was having none of it, and managed to get quite some speed up in the extremely muddy conditions in his woodland home!  With perseverance, and some assistance from Lucy, Mike and Ella, we enticed him out of his lair with mangos and bananas....slowly, slowly, Lucy begged him to follow her with the delicious fruit, whilst Gerry and i kept behind to stop him turning - finally he gave in, and went up into the trailer!
Ella and i drove him back to North Nibley in glorious sunshine and dropped him off at his permanent home, back with his girlfriends.
So, fingers crossed, Sandy will now be pregnant - we have put her in with the other two weaners, to let her end of the woodland rest - it's suffered more than the rest of the wood with all this horrendous rain.   We will then get the pig nursery ready for her to move into at the end of April.

We are running a day of children's activities on Thursday, and have good bookings both morning and afternoon - we will run more at Easter, so do keep checking the website for updates.

The two 'barren' ewes are going off to market next Thursday - the students really enjoy their visits to Driffield, to the market, and we always go and have a look at the poultry while we are there - just in case!

This week is a break, but the students start back next Monday - although we still have all the animals to look after - but luckily Ella is back this week to help - she especially likes looking after Manny one of our horses.
