What a wet one!  The start of 2019's autumn has been a quick dip from hot, long sunny days to rainy, windy short days.  Part of the joy of the British seasons is that we get to enjoy a 'temperate maritime' climate. The British Isles are so-called because we are never f...

There is something so special about spring, not least because as farmers we can enjoy our early mornings in the light, we can see the crops and grass growing and the animals relishing the great outdoors.

A year ago we launched Free Range Dairy Farmers Milk, produced by nine small, family farms, into selected Asda stores. Following its initial success, the milk was then made available in over 350 stores and sales have more than doubled  since early 2017 and, we are plea...

A couple of years ago, around the time we Pasture Promise accredited, the farm became a host for 20 honey beehives in return for a free supply of honey. They are located in a south facing corner of the farm, which is sheltered and easily accessible for the local beekee...

It's damp and miserable here in Gloucestershire, but it's pamper time for the girls, they have the choice of staying in the barns or stepping into the yards for the odd sunny, but mostly wet, and very very windy days this January.   Their food is brought to them, their...
