Better late than never!

It’s been a wet August, but with a few consecutive dry days in September, we were finally able to begin hay making (above). Chris Bulbeck (and his father before him) have been making hay each summer for fifty years, and in all those years haymaking has never been as late in the year as it has been in 2008, thanks to one of the wettest summers on record. Nevertheless, after several days of hard work, approximately 2000 bales of quality hay have been harvested from 20 acres of land in Southbourne and Hambrook, and are now available to buy in our Farm Shop!
