Profile This week: Charlie Charlie is Ben and Georgina’s son. He has just left primary school and is looking forward to starting at secondary school in September. Charlie enjoys spending time out on the farm and always comes out to help feed the animals on a Sunday morning. As you can see from the picture, he is also a dab hand at making sausages! Weaning All of the animals born on the farm spend plenty of time with their mothers. For the cattle this is usually around 6 months and for the pigs, 8 weeks. However, in line with good practice and to give our Mums a break before they have their next calf or litter of pigs, we have to separate Mum and her offspring, known as weaning. This week, we have weaned a batch of our calves. On weaning it can be quite noisy for a couple of days (apologies to the residents of Burstall and our neighbours at home), as the cows miss their calves and the calves miss their milk. However, usually within about 48 hours, the yard and fields quieten down again. Once they are weaned, the male and female calves are separated and they move in with our youngstock in the meadows around the farm. Opening Times  Wednesday 9am - 3pm  Friday 9am - 5pm  Saturday 10am - 4pm  Please observe our C-19 precautions in the shop (details on the door)
