Around the farm
Here are a few ideas of how to have fun in a heat wave. We hope these are useful suggestions and that you enjoy them!
Get in the Pool
When the temperature hits 30C the best place to be is the swimming pool. It’s easy to spend a whole day relaxing on the loungers on the sundeck under a parasol, then having a dip in the pool to cool off, and repeat! The only problem with this is as the pool temperature averages 30 degree Celsius, it’s pretty warm also!
So in response to your enquiries we are just releasing our prices for 2018. We hope to meet you, or see you down on the farm again soon, Lou & Jez Conway :)

2016 was our second year of lambing, and we were all quite nervous going into it this time.
Our new Ram, “Bertie” moved in last summer, and has been in the fields with the ewes since November. Bertie is a Texel sheep. Texel sheep originate from the island of Texel in the Netherlands, and are hardy, tough and docile. Their lambs are reported to have a great will to survive at birth, which bodes well!
