Journey Of A Lifetime: Final

Journey Of A Lifetime: Final
I next would like to talk about chores and admin on the farm, at least the admin that I was able to see. If you really knew what you were doing, feeding and watering the animals could be done within 10-15 minutes give or take a few minutes.

Journey Of A Lifetime: Part 1

Journey Of A Lifetime: Part 1
Wow, what a journey it's been! I am beyond words as to the beauty and history that this country holds in it.

Reflections about Caenhill Countryside Centre – and a quiz just for fun!

As Chris tells us regularly, Caenhill Countryside Centre is a charity set up to help young people and rescue animals. It is however so much more than this. Its motto is Touching Hearts and Lifting Souls. This, I believe, is exactly right. Just after the time the Centre went viral on tik tok I have followed the posts by Chris and Caroline although o...

It is because she is a Chinese Goose whereas many of the others are Embden geese.

Domestic Pigs

Domestic Pigs
A little while ago Chris mentioned that he might consider getting some weaners if Marlene is not pregnant. Weaners are 6-10 week old pigs no longer feeding from their mother. He suggested that someone might like to find out about different breeds of pig in order to see if there was a particular type suited to life on the farm. It so happened that w...
