On Thursday August 18th, nineteen Galloway cattle arrived on the farm. They are owned by a local organic beef farmer, and will be fattened up on ten of our fields ready for market. Grazing is an important part of the farm's management plan, keeping the grass down and manuring the land, providing extra income for the farm, putting all the fields to use, and producing an extra crop from the land. Apart from the first morning (when one cow decided to jump over a hedge and go for a wander around the outskirts of St. Just!) they have been no trouble, and we are glad to have them.
