This week: Marmalade

Marmalade is our new large White stock boar having recently arrived at the farm from his original home in Bedfordshire.

Named Marmalade by our son Charlie “because the new stock bull is called Paddington,” Marmalade has quickly settled into his new summer quarters out in the field with the large white sows. It was quite a job to wake him for the photo on the right!

The year is progressing fast. In a normal year the Suffolk Show would have taken place today.

This is also the week that we normally start to cut silage and true to form, we made a start yesterday. The grass in the photo was cut yesterday and will be baled into round bales tomorrow, each bale weighing around 600kg.

Once made into bales, each bale is wrapped tightly in plastic, which prevents oxygen getting to the grass and allows it to ferment anaerobically. If any air gets into the bale (eg if the plastic is torn), the grass will rot and have to be discarded. We have to be very careful when moving the wrapped bales.

We will hopefully complete our first cut silage in the next week and, fingers crossed, get a second cut off some fields a bit later in the year, which we will bale as hay.

Opening Times  Wednesday 9am - 3pm  Friday 9am - 5pm  Saturday 10am - 4pm
