Another cold May day! At least it's not raining today.........yet.

Just off out to sort out some lambs for the market tomorrow. Now that all the hay meadows are grazed off and closed up to grow we have a small surplus of sheep so time to sell some. Once the hay is all made and the fields have some new growth on them we will buy some more back in to graze them down over next winter and so the cycle continues.

We reached a small milestone recently when we sold our 100th lamb through the box scheme.

Most of the Swaledale have now been sold this season and the rare breeds are just starting. There are currently Hebrideans, Shetlands and Manx Loaghtans available.

In true community supported agriculture style we have also launched an option to pay a small monthly amount by standing order, receiving your half lamb once the amount paid reaches the value of the lamb.
If anyone is interested please contact us through the Flexigraze email
