Well, we're in September now and the harvest went really well in the end. Even with the very wet August our contractors, Cornbury Farm Contracting, worked between the storms to get in the oats and barley. The crops are now safely stored at Rushall Organics and hopefully will be good enough to sell as seed for next year. The straw is in the barn and the ground can rest now till spring.
On Sunday 25th August we held a small open day for our Wiltshire friends belonging to the RBST (Rare Breeds Survival Trust). We had a look and walk around the cattle as well as looking at the new Flowers from the Farm enterprise. The apple trees were also on show and all of this year's grafts appear to have taken, which is great.
The weather was wonderful and we ended back at the farmyard with a lovely barbecue cooked by grandson, Sam. We served Hereford beef burgers and local sausages, followed by home made scones and cakes.
We are continually looking for new products to sell and we will be selling 'Hettie Hen' scotch eggs at Taste Wiltshire on Sunday 8th September. We will also have some honey and Dorset sea Salt with us.
