Just a few days to go until our Christmas Fair! Ahead of the festivities, our staff and volunteers have been hard at working decorating the main courtyard. Many thanks to our corporate volunteer group from we-worldwide.com who spent a chilly morning helping decorate trees, hang tinsel and much much more! They certainly add a festive touch to the courtyard!

Over the next few days we’ll be making a few more additions, then just need to wait for Santa and his elves to arrive and kick off the festivities on Saturday! We hope you’ll join us then!

With cherry trees in blossom and daffodils in flower, it’s almost looking like Spring has arrived early on the farm! There are further wintry storms in the forecast, but this weekend makes it feel as though Spring is on its way (in January!). Here are just a few images from around the farm.

Recent warm weather has brought out the Spring bulbs and coaxed a number of pollinators from their hibernation. Despite snow last week, it is starting to look like Spring may be on its way! Visiting the farm this week? Keep an eye out for the crocuses and snowdrops and listen out for the buzz of queen bumblebees venturing out from their cozy winter burrows.
