Get growing

Here at the farm we're super pleased to share with you that we've teamed up with Paul Jupp from Meadow in my Garden to get the nation growing. No, we're not asking you to devour your whole chocolate stash, you can't blame us for that one, we want to get you growing sunflowers. If you followed the farm on social media last year, you'll know that sun...

Weekly Roundup 19 April 2020

We're back again for another weekly roundup from the Caenhill CC farm, I can't believe it's been another week already. While the team at the farm have been busy with new arrivals, Casey and I have been getting outside and doing some gardening, thankfully it takes a while to get any done so we've got plenty to keep us going. In between gardening we'...

Weekly Roundup 12 April 2020

While Casey and I have been missing being a part of the hard work at the farm, we realised something, so much is happening on the farm right now, even with just a small team. Though we're behind the scenes helping with the social media, planning in shout outs, sharing pictures and whatever else we can do, sometimes even we forget what has happened....

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

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

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?

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...

9th July 2015

A busy team all working together, and this week, a bit of a celebration. A very special team member has celebrated spending a year with us volunteering. Without his dedicated time, support and expertise we would not be where we are now ­ grateful thanks to you (we know who you are) we cannot imagine how things would be without you.

The day started a little cool once more, but it soon brightened up and warmed up too. It was field work time with a helpful team today. The front field was topped and the hay field was worked on. First job there was to turn the hay and let the sun work its magic. Later in came the helpers and off they went with the baling.

The team headed out to stack the bales safely. It should be fit to put into the barn tomorrow ­ a tow needed to get it all moved.

The general chores were needed as always. Tiddler came around with the team for a while.

The guys did a fantastic job out in the pig pen. Today they dug out the muddy hollow a little more, then worked on a stronger, secure fence.

5th July 2015

Here we are, now halfway through the year. A new month dawned ­ the first day being the hottest recorded July temperatures on record.

That did not stop the team at Caenhill CC. Everyone rolled up their sleeves, put on the sunblock and set off with the work in hand.

Now the 2nd day was a little cooler and some rain began to fall. This was good for the plants but not for the hay on the field. To top it all off, the evening was showing a full moon.

Work has now taken on a new strength for everyone ­ must do it, must learn it, can manage The team took over on Friday, running the project and looking after everything.

The weekend showed us all what a great team we have.
