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.

Pig News!
Reggie has gone back, and one of our young boars is off to Ireland to be part of a major breeding programme.  He will be one of the best examples of blood lines from Oxford Sandy and Blacks along with other rare breed examples.
We are taking pigs to the abattoir on Sunday – some are going to Taylors the Butchers in Minchinhampton, and some will be coming back here.
We will have more pork available mid April– ready for Easter.
Sheep News!
lambs out grazing
Lambing is underway – so we are exhausted!  we are using our newly erected barn at the new location!.  Scarlet who was scanned for twins had triplets this week!  I think she’s been in shock ever since, and hasn’t had quite enough milk so I have been topping her lambs (all three are ram lambs) up with bottle milk.
We have had 7 ewes lamb so far.
Hens & Ducks!
We have hen, duck and bantam eggs for sale - some at Jolly Nice at Frampton Mansell - they have our duck and bantam eggs
new arrivals!  we are keeping them
in the poly tunnel for now!

Vegs / Salads
We are potting up / planting out as much as we can in portable pots/troughs so that we can just move them across later on to plant out in the raised beds.

Work has finally started on the log cabin....but of course the weather went on the turn this week - so it's slow, but the fencing is going up speedily all round the site!
view early in the morning at new

work starting on the log cabin!
we found this in the tack room!
