Summer Catch Up!

The mixture of rain and sun has helped the orchard to thrive again and it’s looking as beautiful as ever in the late summer sunshine.

The apples are begining to ripen and the plums are now purple and ready to eat.

There are abundant nuts on the nut trees and it will be a race to who can pick them first us or the squirrels!

One of our major jobs is also looming on the horizon…scything! The grass in the meadows is now ready to cut. We cut the hay using traditional methods using scythes which will all need inspecting and any repairs made before the scything begins.
