Show News

Regulars will be aware that this time of year it’s hard to find David in the office as he’s off showing sheep all over the place. We’ve had great success at the shows so far winning various classes at the Staffordshire, Kenilworth and Three Counties shows. We’ve just got the sheep back from the Lincolnshire show where we had 7 First prizes, 4 Second prizes and 2 Reserve Champions!

Photos to follow along with some extra special news from the Lincolnshire Show!

Regular visitors to the site might have wondered why we had a big yellow digger working in the area between the toilet block and the lambing quarters. Well, it’s a case of little things having big consequences. You see we had to have the cess pit dug out and recopnfigured because it had become blocked up with material that should not have been put down the w.c.’s.

PLEASE if you are using our on site facilities only put the toilet tissue provided down the toilets. Bins are provided for all other materials.

Many thanks.

In the next 10 to 14 days there will be fresh lamb on the chiller in the office. There is still time for you to order half or whole lamb for your freezer, prepared the way you like it, but the sheep will go to the butcher next Wednesday – 13th. – and we will need to know before then. We are confident the winds are going to drop and the sun will remind you what a barbecue is for so why not try some of our lamb at your next summer time garden feast?
