Bedding the cows down it’s a great way to start the day doesn’t matter how cold it is you always hot by the time ur done. It a good time to get to the new calf’s to realise you not scary as you spend some time every day in close proximity with them. There a lot easier to handle if they know ur not a threat. #winter#cow
The first off many delicious beverages to be produced by our new sister company @giltandflint Gilt and flint is a micro brewery and press based on the far, the idea behind it is to produce delicious beverages utilising the best organic ingredients, which we will aim to grow here on the farm. All the spent grain from the brewery and fruit pulp will be used to feed the livestock on the farm maximising the output of our inputs so reducing the negative externalities off both the brewery and the farm. #giltandflint#applejuice#appleandpearjuice#organicfruitjuice#spartan#bramley#deliciousjuice#farmproduce

Moved the cows into a new field today with loads of grass. Due to the dry summer we had the cows will be out grazing for as long as possible as we are short on hay this year. They were very happy to find a large willow tree had fallen in the latest heavy winds. Willow is meant to have good de worming property’s for livestock. Once the cows have had there fill we will cut the tree up and it will be used to fuel our biomass system keeping us warm and providing hot water next winter.
#Repost@petershamnurseries Today we celebrate #worldfoodday. With a growing global population expected to reach in 9 billion by 2050, farmers search for new, more productive ways to farm food and diversify their crops. Using an integrated farming approach will not only help farmers increase their crops’ yield, and thus their profits, but can also improve the quality of their farmland. Harry Boglione, farmer who runs @hayefarm, our sister business and one of our main suppliers aspires to create sustainable food systems, which support high levels of productivity whilst encouraging an increase in biodiversity and wildlife. As well as Haye Farm, we nourish relationships with other suppliers who champion this philosophy. Over the weekend we took part in the Good Food March and are supporting the @thegaiafoundation this week at their We Feed the World Exhibition @thebargehouse. Visit the Barge House to support this movement this #worldfoodday.
