Thinking ahead...autumn/winter 2012!

Delighted to announce that Christmas 2012 is now booked! New Year has been booked for several months. If anyone can bear to think ahead to autumn half term, perhaps now's the time...special holidays get booked up very quickly!

Here's a picture of the apples in the orchard last autumn to get you in the mood...

New email!

We've been having trouble with our existing email address lately - it's a forwarding address to an old email account and is proving unreliable. We now have another email address which will hopefully work in tandem with the old one for now:

You are welcome to use any of the email addresses on our literature but hopefully this one will mean that anyone currently having trouble contacting us will find it easier!

Don't tell the fox...

...but we've booked to collect 10 ex-battery hens in a few weeks' time! Very pleased to have arranged it, the last lot were ex-battery and were very happy and great layers once they settled in.

Here's a picture of our last intake when they first arrived - all we need to do now is try to create a more fox-proof environment. The geese proved useless as a deterrent, despite their great ferocity to toddlers and dogs, so fingers crossed our new arrivals last longer than a year...

Hopefully it won't be long before we're well supplied with eggs for our regular customers at Hemyock Preschool and Primary School! Luckily the ducks are still laying well so none of our regulars have had to resort to Waitrose just yet!
