July 2017 – saw the start of our annual harvest.  When the weather is warm and dry we can harvest the crops which will be stored to feed the pigs over the winter.  This year we have grown oil seed rape for the first time in many years, we have put this crop into our rotation as it has a very strong root stem that helps the soil structure, we also hope that this crop will help with some weed control.  We do not use rape seed oil in our pig feed so this crop will be sold.

We have started our Barley harvest although with heavy showers we are struggling to get it in the shed and the crop is starting to drop to the floor.  We are hoping for a few days of dry weather before we loose our crop.

The pigs do not like the changeable weather either, we have seen some coughs and colds so we are doing our best to help our pigs feeling better soon.

Eric is our new male boar stud on-farm, he has just started to work and coming along nicely.  We hope his young will be just as cute as him.
