March 2019 news from the farm

This is a quiet time of year for the Farm and availability of our homegrown produce. We only have white cabbage and last seasons onions and potatoes available in the Farm Shop. Purple sprouting broccoli should be available soon and another month or so our delicious asparagus will be ready!

If the soil dries out and warms up enough we will be able to make a start planting carrots, cauliflowers, cabbage and possibly even potatoes this month. We will also be sowing the onion seeds and putting in the strawberries for the 2020 season.

The pruning and tying in of all the bush fruit is now finished.

There are signs of growth on our rhubarb plants but not much else showing signs of life just yet.

General maintenance around the farm continues as they prepare for the busy planting season ahead.

Both the wildlife and farm staff are looking forward to some warm, dry and sunny weather.
