The Easter holidays are almost over and Harvey will be returning back to Uni for his final exams and Phoebe will be back to school for her last term at Heart of the Forest .
While I have been busy in the sheep pens and Robert is power harrowing the next generation are milking the cows. Its great having a team of four and even five when Alex Nicholas is with us on a Friday and Sunday . Its very important to encourage youngsters into the dairy industry and give them the support they need . Dairying is and can be a very hard way of life but its how you manage it to get the best results for the team and to maintain high welfare standards for the cows. The aim here is happy cows and happy staff.
The raw milk business is continuing to grow online and at the farm gate. I am looking forward to the next farmers market in May in Grosmont to catch up with all my local customers .
