October 2007 Newsletter

Hello to you all,

We have been incredibly busy this month, finally getting round to putting in a new hard standing that will make things a little less muddy when it rains plus our new monthly market in Newbury. We were a little sceptical about doing a local market because we have never found them to be that good. However, this one was, I’m pleased to report, very good and we shall be returning next month. We even had Anthony Worrall-Thompson at our stall buying chicken; I just wish we had taken a camera.

Colder Mornings

The birds are all doing well and don’t seem to mind the colder mornings we have been having, I have even found some choosing to sleep outside the sheds at night as we don’t shut them in. The new sheds that we bought at the end of last year are fairing really well and really keep cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

They are also so easy to clean out compared to our old ones. The best thing about them is the fact they don’t have floors so when the birds are gone you just open a flap at the back and at the front then pull it forward with the tractor and all of the bedding is left behind.


I have left this as late as possible but I’m afraid it is nearly Christmas folks. You will find included in your envelope this month details of our Christmas specials. We have fantastic turkeys, gammon joints and, of course, we will have chipolatas. Please do not leave it too late if you would like something from the list as we only have very limited stocks.

Farmer's Rant

It has been a while since I last had a good old moan about something and I felt it was about time I vented my frustration on you all, as I am still getting rubbish from passing cars being thrown into my hedges. I really don’t understand why people think it is acceptable to litter. Still, I may have got my own back....

I had 2 bin bags thrown into a hedge about 2 weeks ago. So, when I had 5 mins, I took them out and was going to put them out for the bin men when I saw a letter with a name and address on it. A quick call to the council and they have taken my statement and collected the evidence and are now in the process of getting the culprit in for a chat.

Until next month, best wishes,

Clare & Paul
