Open Farm Sunday

Once a year, farms all over the country throw open their gates and invite everyone to come along and find out what farming is really about and where their food comes from. 

I was delighted to be invited to join the Glover family in Hartley near Longfield in Kent for their Open Sunday, along with a number of other farmers and food producers.  And what a fantastic day we had!  Plenty of people came along to meet the animals, have tractor and trailer rides, sample lots of wonderful local food and generally enjoy being out in the countryside for the day (despite the chilly wind!).

As well as our usual milk, cheese and meat for sale, I also had our wonderful soap and our our lovely goat cards available - it all makes for a nice display which hopefully catches the eye of people wandering past!

Plenty of pictures of the goatie girls and boys and a little competition to encourage people to 'name that goat'.


I had lots of fabulous suggestions for names for our new little girls and it will be very difficult to decide who should win .. But that's a job for tomorrow!

And finally - Valerie's little white boy is doing OK.  He ran into the parlour with mum and brother tonight and did eat a little of his dinner, so hopefully he is feeling better.  Keep those fingers crossed for the moment ...
