New Arrivals at Fordhall

We have had two litters of piglets in the last 2 weeks. Unfortunately a couple didn't survive but that's life. The ones that did survive are happily running around and keep finding thier way through the hedge to discover the big wide world. You can come and see all the animals at the farm during the Farm Shop opening hours - Wed, Fri, Sat and Sun 11-4.

This little beauty arrived on Saturday night. A late comer but Baby Barry was more than welcome. Hes got his dads looks...!

Below is the mother of the little piglets in the photo. She particuarly likes a good scratch against anything that stands still long enough. She deserved a 'well done' as this was her first litter and she coped really well.

If you missed out on the fantastic article in the Observer yesterday take a couple of minutes to glance at it now. It really sets the project within the wider context and reinforces how we have managed to soar over the first hurdle purely because of the enormous amount of help from everyday people we received.
