June started warm and dry but that was short lived and we finished with 58mm of rain see more on the weather report.
This has meant no haymaking so far and much time has been spent painting the toilets for our live nature trail visitors starting in September.

This year we are offering a more basic service but 2005 who knows. To learn more this word document produced by the (government) Department for Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA for short).
The middle of the month has seen us once again at the Cheshire County show click here for a full report.
In June 2002 I mention that our one cow (Frerzy) that is not a Holstein/Friesian breed had calved a bull calf last year, she did the same however this year our Frerzy had a shrerzy this is a Shorthorn cross and as you see unlike Grandmother (Black and White), Mother (Brown)
She is an attractive red and white. Currently doing well. Hopefully in two and a half years time we may have another member to the family.
During the winter months and any wet spells during the rest of the year, the access to the Implement shed, Lean-to, Wood store and Polo’s box are hampered due to the wet land we are therefore putting down some hard standing consisting of a rubble base topped with road plainings (old road surface).
On mentioning the new wood store last month here it is now sited, painted and already half full. I hope this winter will see it easier to get to than floundering in the mud.
Early July will see us making our Maize Maze for any visitors dry haymaking weather and continuing with the hard standing.
