Making hay while the sun shines

With the warm weather of last week we thought we would try and make some hay from our recent topping of the fields - the activity was also spurred on from recently receiving a pitch fork as a birthday present.
Our bales of hay certainly don't look as organised or efficient as the ones you see dotted around farm fields all over, but they will hopefully give the sheep a bit of extra calories in the winter months.

Talking of farm fields we currently have an opportunity to take on 160 acres (NOW THAT'S HUGE!!) of fields, that really would make us Tiny Farmers - so very exciting, but also very daunting. We are carefully crunching the numbers and trying to find out as much information as we can. If we did take it, the majority would be used as sheep grazing and we might expand to other things in the future. Watch this space for some very exciting news soon...
