This half term has flown by....i can't believe we had our last day yesterday with the students for the next five weeks or so...although we will be doing summer activities during the holidays for school age children (look on the website for details)
We have had an awful month losing two lambs to pneumonia, and one ewe to a twisted gut - i think it's the weather...so much rain and not enough sun - until this last week or so
We have another bantam hatch 6 hens (she was sitting squashed down between one of the raised beds in the poly tunnel) and we have one sitting on eggs in the middle of the straw stack in the yard!
The lambs look fantastic - and we will be weaning them next month hopefully. we sent off two of last year's lambs last week - they will be delicious mutton as they are over a year old now
We have our end of term lunch next week, where we give out certificates to all the students. Sadly we say good bye to 3 of them this term, but will be welcoming 3 new students in September.
Sandy is looking forward to her 6 piglets being 'weaned' next week - she is getting a bit fed up with them eating her food! They look great and weigh in at around 14 kilos each.....
We have started selling our veg boxes this week - beetroot, chard, potatoes & salad bags with fresh herbs
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.
