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.

lambing due to start in a week or so!

we brought the ewes back from the bank; first day back!  They all came to Mark's call, and are now very happily settled in the field by the Care Farm, ready for lambing.   We have cleared out the yard and are just sorting out / disinfecting all the hurdles ready to make lambing pens up.

Last year's lambs are still very happy in Woodmancote and we will shortly be sending some of the weathers off...for Easter Mutton!
the lambs nearby

At last after ....time we have managed
to get the topper out of the yard!

Perry has moved on to a happy retirement, not far away.  The students were sad to see him go, but he was not able to perform any more, so we had to make a difficult situation.  On a brighter note, Sandy who went off to a boar locally, is definitely in pig now.  She should be due around 2nd week of May.

We have opened up the poly tunnel doors into the fruit cage for the hens!  They were SO PLEASED to be able to scratch around for worms finally, having been shut in for so long.  It is still 'wild bird' proof as it is fully netted.  They are laying like mad, and some of the bantams are even going broody!

So it's full steam ahead for lambing now......watch this space!
