St Nicholas School visit


On Tuesday we had a great school visit


On Tuesday 24th March we welcomed thirty six and seven-year-olds from St Nicholas School , Harpenden to the farm for a visit. It was part of their studies about where their food comes from. We made sure they got lots of hands on farming experience with feeding our cows and chickens and testing and weighing our various cereal crops as well as the always popular tractor and trailer ride. They asked loads of questions and seemed to have a great time.


A bit of history


Whilst clearing out a shed we stubbled across a bit of farm history from almost 100 years ago


During the last couple of days we have been clearing out one of the sheds on the farm to use for the sorting and packing of the eggs. The room used to be used by the staff who looked after the farms horses until about 1950. Hidden on the wall we discovered around fifty rosettes and prize card from the 1920's and 1930's. They are mainly from the Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire County shows. We are hoping to create a display which we will exhibited at this years Herts Show during the weekend of 23th and 24th May.
