Egg hunts

Who said that hunting for eggs was only an Easter activity? OK, maybe no-one. Here at the farm we have an egg hunt several times a day, as our lucky hens have one hectare of overgrown field to roam freely in, and some even roost during the day in the willow trees. Some days we can find over 100 eggs in the field (and the same number in the houses).

If anybody would like to join our rota of volunteers hunting for eggs please call in to the farm shop and sign up! Many thanks.

Matt and Jake

Two of our WWOOFers left last week having each spent one month living and volunteering here on the farm - Matt from Cheshire and Jake from Sheffield. Many thanks to Matt and Jake for spending time with us helping on the farm.
