|Mike at one of our Easter|
Sad news, a good friend, and former volunteer passed away recently; Mike Hyams. He was one of our first volunteers here at the Care Farm, and will be sorely missed. He also helped out at the RDA at Coates, nr Cirencestser, and was the most gentle of men, and always got on so well with everybody.
Gerry and i represented the Care Farm at his funeral this week.

Gerry and i went to a very interesting talk and presentation last weekend, on the history of Oxford Sandy & Black pigs...so we now know how the breed was started,and all the finer points on 'breed standards'! We also picked up some 'Vorwerk' eggs for our incubator - let's hope we have better luck this year than previous years....watch this space!
Off to check on those ewes again now.....
