Sorry for not having put much on here lately, but last year was possibly the worst year of our lives.

Our gorgeous grandson Joey was diagnosed with a DIPG brain tumour, and despite under going treatment all Autumn, he lost his battle for life a week before Christmas.

To say it has turned our lives unside down would be an understatement.


And now we have this horrid Covid 19 to contend with. All summer events are cancelled, but we have all kept safe so far.


Lets hope the rest of the year improves.

Stay safe everyone

Well the Turkeys are all sold already and it is only 2nd December.

The cattle are all indoors in the warm and dry, but the sheep are still outside running with the rams at the moment. It will be scanning time soon, to find out how many lambs we will be expecting.


We will not be doing the Farmers Market anymore in the New Year, as it just does not pay . Very sad, as we have done one for 15 years. But times change.

We have a new puppy called Brandy after our big bear Harley died from cancer.

Well 2017 has been a similar year to 2016.

But we are now doing more outside Catering Events selling our own cooked Hot Dogs and Burgers.

Sheep numbers are at approx 220 ewes, cattle numbers are 25 Breeding Females, with a new Bull, Glenariff Goldcrest. and pig numbers are 8 Breeding Sows and 2 Boars.

We now have 4 lovely Grandchildren all waiting to come and help us on the Farm.

Well Turkey time has come and gone now, and we are looking forward to the better weather and Lambing and Calving.

We have stopped having a Stall at Macknade Fine Foods, after 13 years of being there, it will seem strange for a while, but nice to have our Saturdays to ourselves. Our Pork is now in the Macknade Butchery counter instead.

WE will still be doing the monthly Farmers Markets at "The Best of Faversham" down Preston Street, on the 1st Saurday of the month. Hope to see you there.

We are well into the summer now, and the Turkeys have arrived. Straw and Silage all in the barn, and we have had our fist calf today, the start of the Autumn Calving.
