February- Sheep in waiting! Open Farm Sunday is coming!!

Our Welsh Farm is getting prepared for lambing lots happening in the next few months. Spring is on its way all sheep have been scanned and results good despite the cruel winter we have had.

We are hosting a french agricultural college group on the 9th of March they want to experience rural Wales. I hope they enjoy must get out the phrase book!!

Lambing will begin at the end of March and we will be lucky to have the expertise of a Bristol Uni Vet student  learning from both sides will be a great experience.


I am now Welsh coordinator for Open Farm Sunday an initiative of LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming).

LEAF brings farmers and consumers together to raise
awareness of how farmers are working in harmony with nature to produce good food with environmental care.

After the success of "Care for your Food We Do!" the theme this year is " Discover Life on British Farms" If you wish to find out where you can visit a farm on Open Farm Sunday June 12th 2011 please visit the website Open Farm Sunday .
If you are a farmer and would like to get involved or just thinking about it please attend one of the workshops which are being held across the UK in March/April. Please have a look OFS workshops. Attending a workshop will give you all the hints and tips you need to host a success event and could make up your mind!
