Oak House Farm 03.07.2020

With pubs and restaurant re-opening this weekend, life is getting back to something that resembles normal. Hopefully, we will avoid a second lockdown. We are open as usual with our Covid-19 precautions still in place and still offering our free delivery service within 6 miles from the farm. Profile This week: Zeus Zeus is a Hampshire Down lamb ram. We purchased him as a butchers lamb earlier in the year from a local breeder, but as we needed a new stock ram and he’s a nicely grown chap, we have decided to keep him on. Zeus is growing fast and will be able to begin work in early autumn. We hope to have lots of Zeus babies born early in the New Year. Compound feed Arable cropping predominates in East Anglia and this gives livestock farmers excellent access to high quality food sources for our stock. As a mixed farm, we grow as much of the food for our livestock on the farm as we can, including wheat, barley, grass and our experimental lupins. Grain cannot be fed to livestock without processing and depending on who it’s for, our grain is either passed through a roll mill or a hammer mill and then blended in a large 1.5 tonne mixer before it can be fed to the animals. Each group of animals gets a different blend of grain and minerals, so that their exact dietary requirements are met. In total we make 6 different recipes on the farm. In total the animals eat about 3 tonnes of grain based compound feed each week. Opening Times  Wednesday 9am - 3pm  Friday 9am - 5pm  Saturday 10am - 4pm  Please observe our C-19 precautions in the shop (details on the door)
