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.

busy busy!

Gerry has had her baby - a lovely little girl; Connie Ruth - we wish them all well

We have moved the piglets this week with Sandy, up to the woodland, as they were starting to wreck the field outside their nursery (we have been letting them out to feed so that Sandy didn't eat their as well!) They should be weaning next week, so then we will move Sandy back to her nursery for a rest

We have lots of produce coming on in the raised beds - the students have been busy planting over the last couple of months, and with the rain and now sun, we have lovely sugar snap peas, broad beans,
potatoes, and strawberries ready for picking.   Next up will be the sweet corn, leeks, runners and french beans.  The cabbage and cauliflower don't look quite so good, as some bug has got in with them...in the poly tunnel we have planted lots of tomatoes of different varieties in grow bags down the centre, and mixed salads round the edges in raised beds.

We are starting ours tall in the Friday market (formerly WI/Country Markets) behind Smiths again this week hopefully, so do call in and buy some produce.  We are also selling sweet peas to Oops a Daisy the florist in Cricklade Street, Cirencester

We have lots of pork, bacon, sausages and gammon for sale this week too!

The tractor we purchased (a second hand Kubota) is still in the yard - with a few small problems, but hopefully by next week it will be sorted !
Tim and Lez looking at the engine....puzzzled!
