Well April has been a busy month, it always is, particularly paperwork, as we struggle to catch up with ourselves after kidding season. We start to get all the bookings in for the summer markets, file the single farm payment, and other such bits and pieces that we let fall on the wayside as we concentrate on the kids.

We started the month by squeezing in a little Butchery class, which is aways good fun, great to see customers heading home with that extra bit of knowledge and kindled passion for more sustainable nose-to-tail eating.
