We have a mixed farm of Diary, Sheep, Pigs, Cattle and Arable. There are 7 members of the family currently working on the home farm covering 2 generations so it really is a family concern!
Our farming year is varied and very much ruled by the weather. Early spring sees our first lambing of the year. We soon move on to lambing our main flock in March, turning out cattle and dairy cows in April before moving on to silage, hay making and sowing the maize in May and June. In July the harvest starts and goes through to the beginning of September when we move on to drilling the crops for the following year.
