Bluebells in Wooda Wood

Been to see the Bluebells again today, what a fantastic sight, the wood is literally carpeted with them, the scent is heavenly.

Piglet and Water Trough

We fight a never ending battle here to reunite water and pigs.

On a sunny day though a new use has been found of our most recent design of drinker :)

This design is in preference to the standard low lamb/cattle drinker which is the perfect size to trap a weaner of about 12 weeks
