The sheep have all had their annual hair cut 🐑 ✂️.  Luckily for them we had the professionals in. Yes it’s expensive, yes the fleeces are pretty much worthless this year, but it’s worth it to see our sheep happy and maggot-free.

About Rich and his farm

Rich says; “Come and join me for the highs and lows of farming cattle and sheep, along with growing a variety of crops for us and our animals to eat. Laugh with me, laugh at me, I don’t mind, just come and see how great British food is produced and why we do what we do.”
