Going Live

Going Live
It might be the countdown to Easter, but at the farm Chris, Caroline and Helie are currently really busy getting ready for Spring. There's been a lot of fencing to sort to get our animals out in the fields and regular checks on the sheep as we should be seeing more lambs arrive soon. But the difference this Spring is that we're having to get all of...

Duck dancing

Duck dancing
If you are a regular follower of CaenhillCC on our social media channels you will have no doubt seen our ducks dancing. They don't quite have moves like John Travolta, but they do a pretty good job. But the question is, why do they dance? No we aren't secretly playing music to them, it's actually because ducks are real flirts. Those sweet little he...

Manic Monday

Manic Monday
It's been so busy this week supporting the farm and keeping my toddler entertained without our usual classes that I'm a bit delayed in writing this. But I didn't want to miss the chance to talk about one of the busiest days I've had at the farm in a while. It feels really strange to say that it's busy at the farm with so many people at various stag...

Have you met our rescue rabbits and guinea pigs?

Have you met our rescue rabbits and guinea pigs?
We don't often bring domestic pets into our care at CaenhillCC, part of the reason for this is funding, it's important that all of our animals are well cared for. Though I suspect another reason behind this is to stop me from taking all of the animals home. I'm a real softie when it comes to animals and until recently I've always had pet, animals a...

In memory of my mum

In memory of my mum

17th February is my mum's birthday, sadly no longer with us but her spirit lives on as does her passion for animals with me. Mum (Coral Franklin nee Cave) moved to the farm with my dad in 1959 and loved the farm though she did get upset whenever an animal left the farm for market. She loved her dogs and a great passion for cats. Always a smart lady and she would be proud what we are doing to help young people and animals at the farm now.
