Compost signs

Heather, who has been volunteering with us since January, has also been busy creating signage on the farm (see both Polly and Warren's pieces in earlier entries), this time for our compost bays to help us be more organised and produce better compost. Many thanks Heather!

More recent WWOOFers

Ivo, from London, seen here picking basil in Valentine, stayed for three weeks.

Abby, from Byron Bay, seen here picking courgettes, stayed for 7 weeks.

Matt, from Stockport, on his second stay with us, seen here weeding the maincrop field, stayed for 3 weeks.

Many thanks to our three WWOOF volunteers, who helped us out in August and September, who have headed home or onto new things.

New farm map

Warren, one of our long-term residential volunteers, has created this amazing new map of the farm, which we have mounted on the wall in the farmyard. Warren is a supremely talented artist and sign-writer, and this map is a wonderful addition to the farm, along with other signs and murals (some have already featured on this blog, and some will be here later) by both Warren and Polly. Many thanks to both!

Veg boxes

We deliver our community farm not-for-profit veg boxes all around the area. Our veg is picked fresh here on the farm on Thursdays by a team of dedicated volunteers, ready to be packed, then delivered or collected on Fridays.
