Student raises money for 20 rescue hens

Student raises money for 20 rescue hens

Well done to our star student Paige who raised money via our volunteers to take in 20 rescue hens from the British Hen Welfare Trust. Paige had help to build a large enclosure with pallets donated by Sydenhams of  Devizes. Other students Sophie, Owen & Olivia helped with the enclosure and making sure all was good for their arrival last Saturday.Thanks to some TLC the hens are laying a few eggs & enjoying some much needed sunshine. Paige hopes to take in more rescue hens, if you can help raise funds for more hens pleased get in touch or donated via our PayPal on the left or contact British Hen Welfare Trust to adopt your own rescue hens via their website > http://www.bhwt.org.uk/ *smile*

Time for a tool bar

Time for a tool bar

We are very grateful to everyone who have donated tools to the projects and we are always looking for more for our students to use. Today as it was a blustery and wet day the team started building a tool bar in the middle of the barn. We can now find our wheel barrows, forks, shovels and brushes.  Our students also worked on levelling the floor in the stable where we do our craft. Of course if you have tools you can donated please let us know *smile*

Corrugated metal sheets wanted

Corrugated metal sheets wanted

Great to have local support from so many people and organisations. Our project is built on donations of old, used or not wanted materials. From this our students make something out of nothing, amazing what can be achieved by using pallet wood and other donated materials. Sydnehams & Headlights of Devizes give us pallets and the students strip them down to make raised beds, gates and so much more. Of course what we can't use we burn in our wood burner.
At the moment we are looking for old corrugated metal sheets to build larger shelters for our goats who certainly do not like the rain.

The start of a pallet fence built by our Saturday team.

No Monday blues despite the weather

No Monday blues despite the weather

Greetings - just doing some updates to the website and found no news on the website for ages! but of course daily updates on our facebook group, which is hidden but you can join by contacting us. So much happens on a daily basis and so many people to thank. Good today to sign off papers for some of our Lackham students who have been doing work experience for the last 7 months. Its good that students can get a hands on experience with the many aspects of farming and of course working through the various seasons. We wish them well though all have asked to continue with the volunteering.

The wet weather today is good for ducks but not for goats and we are looking for corrugated metal sheets for more goat shelters of course we do not need new. Wel off to do the milking.... thanks for reading *smile*

Farm Blog 25th October 2015

Farm Blog 25th October 2015

Summer Time has ended so we tried to have a little extra sleep then woke to the feel of winter with a frost outside.

Work over the last couple of weeks has been around getting ready for a cold spell so a good time to try out our hard work.

The chimney flue is now in place all ready for the burner to go in once it has been delivered.

The chicken pen had a good clear out this week from a good team supervised well in military style. It is all clean dry and cosy for them all. They will not mind the shorter days outside with a good roost waiting for them.

The rain poured yesterday but our students worked through with us to prepare a drier bantam pen which was well used last night.
