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.

spring term!

i know it's the Spring term, but the weather is definitely not being 'spring' like at the moment!
The woodland where our pigs are is looking a bit sorry - we have been putting loads of wood chipping into it to try and soak up the wet - the pigs don't appear to care less! But it does make it hard work for us - and it means that we can't let the students in to their enclosures....could mean lots of 'lost' wellies!
Perry and Sandy happy again!

Baxter just having a look round!
The ewes were scanned yesterday - our Thursday group of students brought them back from the bank field across country as its too wet to get the trailer anywhere near. So, Graham the scanner has predicted 8 sets of twins and 3 singles this time - great news!  Baxter has done his best, and hopefully we can get him back to Stanton St Quintin tomorrow (weather permitting)

Perry the boar is back staying with Sandy!   It was great bringing him here again - Sandy was calling to him when we pulled up outside and she came out to meet him...they almost walked off hand in hand!

The students have settled back into their routine very quickly, and love being back with all the animals.  It will soon be time to start planting up all the beds ....we have been busy preparing them, and have several beds of salads in the poly tunnel already.
