Cold and bright and still no snow!
Our bell tents are furnished and ready to go, so if you want to pack light, come and stay with us and connect with the outdoors in comfort 💓
Wet through! It has rained a lot overnight and the ground is absolutely saturated. We all need a bit of sunshine ☀️
The birds are singing 🙌
Please read : Today - unfortunately a shocking incident occurred of an out of control dog in fields at Dale Farm. The owner couldn’t get the dog to come back to the whistle and we watched as it chased a group of our sheep through ia fence and over a wall until one young sheep split off. then the dog ran alongside biting at the animal until it collapsed at the wall and the owner was able to grab the lead. The sheep couldn’t stand up from the shock and there were chunks of wool torn away. We don’t know yet whether the shock of the attack will have a greater impact. Majority of sheep in fields at the moment are due to give birth in the next couple of months so it’s an extra sensitive time. To watch this happen to animals we care for daily is extremely upsetting. Please please be extra vigilant. This cannot keep happening. The owner said the lead had snapped and had completely lost control of the dog
Highland beef and leek pie. Home bred and raised beef and leeks grown here on the farm too. A celebration of our ingredients. Beef cuts available from the farm, get in touch 😀
On blustery, damp winters days, everyone is grateful for some good food 😀
Cooking with our highland beef! Link to video with the recipe and all the latest from the farm is on our YouTube channel! Link in bio ....
Sheepy shuffle ...down the lane to the farm for sorting out today. Green on the wool means triplets, so these will be grouped together
Love where we farm 💚
The sheep have my respect and admiration, for they endure the storms and carry on ☀️
Hoping that it can’t rain forever in Derbyshire ☀️💚 - we are ready for colour and sunshine and warmth. pic from 2019 on the camp site
The underfloor heating has been laid for the new campsite facilities block, which will be home to 6 showers, 7 loos and a disabled shower and toilet, heated using geothermal energy from the ground. This should be a great addition to the camp site💚
Campervan life 💚
