16 JANUARY 2018

These three ladies were adorning our front field until Hein brought them in this morning. Partly because of the impending snow, but more importantly so as they can prepare themselves for their imminent nuptials. The new boar who hopefully will be with us within the week, has been working hitherto as a sperm donor. We’re hoping that the sight of real live women will renew his ardour and lead to loads of piglets in the Spring.

The weather forecast is more changeable than the weather itself. One minute we are promised heavy snow, the next light snow or rain. Today in anticipation of snow, I was digging parsnips, pulling swedes, beetroot, leeks and kale and cutting our few remaining cabbage. Whatever the weather, there will be food available in both the shop and the Tea Room. The fire will be lit and as always a warm welcome to those braving the bad weather.

See you soon.
