News From The Farm December 2023 & January 2024

Most of December is devoted to getting the extra stock sorted for the Christmas period. We continue to grade more potatoes and onions and have plenty in storage to last the winter. Our delicious homegrown sprouts are now available and there will be plenty available for your Christmas dinner.

Our own grown holly will soon be available in the Garden Centre but it will be a race against time to pick it before the birds eat all the berries.

All of the winter ploughing and pruning is now complete, it took a little longer than usual to finish as the ground has been so wet.

Crops in general are growing as they should and will continue to do so unless we get much colder weather. Planning for next years crops and rotations take place on rainy days.

January is always a quiet time of year with short days and unsettled weather and we don’t get as many outdoor jobs done as we would like to. It gives us the opportunity to service equipment and tidy up around the farm.

We hope you enjoy our homegrown vegetable with your festive dinner and we wish you all a very ‘Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year’ from the Farm.
