Its hard to believe that the clocks have gone back and it is now officially winter time, the summer has flown by and I have been reminded that I have neglected my blogs !
So much has happened since my last post but one of the most important jobs that affect Daisy and friends is the baling of straw and carting it back to the farmyard.
This will be used as bedding for the long cold winter months so we must be sure to bale the straw when it is dry, otherwise it can go mouldy and start to rot.
This is Danny's job, so while the combine is munching its way through the harvest he has to chase after it with the baler and then cart the round bales back to the farm and make neat stacks.
As the nights draw in and the first frosts start to threaten we have to begin rounding up all the younger cattle that have spent the summer out in the fields, usually by now the grass has all but stopped growing and the cows are ready to be loaded into the trailer and be taxied back to the farmyard.
It still feels warm though and it seems a shame to bring them in, but we know that winter is just around the corner so over the next few weeks all the cattle will be brought back.
Picture below of Henry, our Hereford bull with some of his girl friends ! (He is good friends with my German Shepherd)
Some of you will have seen him either in the field at Skellingthorpe off the old railway track or now in the field next to Daisy Made.
This picture was taken a few weeks ago when we moved him back.
I hope you have all enjoyed your summer and a big thankyou for coming to visit us at Daisy Made this year.
Remember we are now open all year (except Mondays in winter) The icecream is just as good but with out having to queue ;)
