Wow what a week it has been - and we’re only about half way through!. No, there’s no joke here. We have reached April, no fooling, and we are rushing through another week.

Life here at the farm has been fast and buzzing. The sun has appeared much more than we had been told but the strong winds have come along to try our strength and our patience.

A night of howling gales saw the polytunnel give in and start to flap around wildly. It was the middle of the night, not a good time to be out there wrestling with it all.  A rather sleepless night followed by a busy day,

young volunteerIt was good to see the group from Youth Action Wiltshire here to share their handy work and take part in farm activities. The rain stayed away so no-one went home covered in mud, but all were smiling and chatting all the way back.

Today they returned to show a group from the Inspire project how to make raised beds, how to work on the goose house. So many keen and happy faces all glowing with the fresh air and with pride at what they had achieved.

Extra bonus for them all, twin lambs born just before they arrived so a visit just had to happen. Also last night the alpaca arrived and nervously looked around his new area today. No name yet!

It was good to meet one of the team who showed great skills, leadership and support and had talked his way into getting a lift and returning to help for an extra day. Thank you.
