We would like to take this opportunity to wish you a Happy New Year and to thank you for your valued custom, both at Christmas and throughout the year. It is greatly appreciated.
On the farm the ongoing flooding and terrible weather conditions are very bad news for all the outwintered stock; to the extent that the pregnant ewes are being moved into the barns a month earlier than usual, and the store lambs constantly being moved out of danger onto higher ground. Even the Longhorn cattle, renowned for their dislike of the indoors, are grateful to have a dry bed and roof this winter!
This is the month to make the most of the game while the season lasts. Pheasant, partridge & mallard not to mention pigeon, wild rabbit and venison are all very healthy and great value too.
