Two months have flown by since my last news and lots has happened so i’ve put up a couple more photos than usual. Our first summer has come and gone with a sprinkle or two of rain but our happy yurters have really enjoyed themselves, having an adventure while living off grid in a quiet meadow looking out onto the Cambrian mountains. Thea and I are so happy to have had such lovely people staying, we wish that some of you didn’t have to go!
One of the nicest things has been to see all the children making new friends, splashing in muddy puddles and running around the fields together. This year we have taken everyone who has wanted to around the farm to see all the animals, vegetables and to collect eggs. The cows have really enjoyed being fed fresh carrots everyday, it makes a change from grass.
The farm shop is bursting full of vegetables and meat from our farm, its amazing to see what can be produced from the land. My pigs, Smokey and Streaky have now become the most tasty sausages and burgers i have ever eaten (i would say that though)… you will have to try some when you come and stay! We cooked up lots of burgers for our open day and raised lots of money for the local school to buy some science equipment for the children. Thank you to everyone who came.
Next year is looking really exciting because we have got a really fun project in the pipeline, a new arrival for you to stay in at the yurt… watch this space for exciting news. Talking of new arrivals, Thea and i have got another baby on the way as well so we’re going to have a very busy winter!
