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 the work done with a small team. We certainly can't complain about the hard work though, there's very little time to worry about anything other than our animals.
It's actually therapeutic spending time with our animals, even at these difficult times, so we started to think about how we could capture that. We might be missing our students and volunteers but we didn't want them to miss out on their visits. So we decided to go live alongside our daily videos, and let everyone else out there join us too.
That's right, every day there's a chance to join Chris at the farm while he feeds and checks on our animals. At 12 noon he's live on Facebook and at 6pm he's live on Twitter (both times GMT, we'll let you know if times vary) and you never know, there might be a few surprise live feeds along the way.
The best bit about live video is that you can interact with Chris from the comfort of your sofa. Casey and I will be watching along too (and Caroline if she's not out working with Chris) so that we can help answer any of your questions and make sure the chickens are fed to Casey's standards. As it's the build up to Easter we're hoping to make the videos as fun as possible too, and we'll even be brining you a virtual egg hunt around the farm on Easter Sunday, so keep a look out for details of that.
If there's anything that you'd like to see, or any questions you have don't forget to let us know, you're welcome to drop me a message. If you are enjoying watching, don't forget to share us with your friends and family too, we'd love to share the farm them.
We're really looking forward to seeing a few familiar faces around the farm again once its safe, and even welcoming some new faces for a visit, but until then, keep safe.
Kara and Casey
