Sorry the Blog has taken a back seat over the last few weeks - sadly my father passed away and so i haven't been keeping up with my 'blogging' ...SO
We have taken the first 3 ram lambs off to the abattoir this weekend, and they will hopefully be ready the first week of November. The ewes have gone down the Bank field so they can be 'flushed' ready for the ram arriving next week.
All the students have been working really hard this term - they have been preparing the raised beds in the poly tunnel, where we are growing lots of salads for a local pub. Outside we still have a small bed of chard and spinach, and some leeks.
We have had lots of windfalls which has been great for feeding to the pigs and our ewes love them too.
After half term, we will be busy getting ready for the Christmas Fair at the end of November. The students really enjoy making produce each year for it. We hope it will be a good fund raiser for us.
Hopefully, i will get time to download / upload some photos before long - bit more exciting than text only!
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.
