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?

It is withe great sadness that I report a death in the farm’s family yesterday. Those of you who have had a calendar off us this year will have seen Janet our top ewe on several of the pictures, including the photoshoped front cover with David in India. She died yesterday and we are all very sad.

Bramain Janet was born on 24th. October 2006. She was Reserve Champion of the Staffordshire show in May 2009, Champion of any other breed at the Lincolnshire Show in June 2009, Female Champion of the Kenilworth show in 2009 and Reserve Female Champion at the Great Yorkshire Show in July 2010 as seen on the calendar. She was developing a new career in public appearances, publicising the woolen coffins being manufactured by Hainsworth having featured in newspapers, magazines and on television from 2009 to 2011. Many dates were already arranged for 2012.

She has been buried alongside the smaller reservoir on the farm and will be badly missed.
