By Heather 12 years ago




As you will know Open Farm Sunday involved around 400 farms opening their gates for a day. You can see how other farmers got on this year in the Farmers Weekly
Here's a few photos that Immy sent into me of her experience of our farm - thanks Immy.

Make your own Lacewing Shelter

By Heather 12 years ago

I really like Beansprouts blog by Melanie Rimmer and she suggests that if you dont want to buy your own Lacewing shelter that you make you own, which I think is a great idea. Here's her instructions - which indeed are very similar to what Ricardo will make on Family Day here on the farm on August 15th.

What a wonderful day Farm Sunday was. We had a cow calving within 10 minutes and plenty going on including Farmer Phil's safari...

Wiggly on Radio One!

By Heather 12 years ago

Well, - as you will no doubt realise Wiggly Wigglers does get a bit of media coverage - this month we have been in The Telegraph, The Times and there is the most beautiful article on our http://www.wigglywigglers.co.uk/shop/foundcategory.lasso?category_id=15 in Country Living which came out this week.

However Radio One has been surprisingly elusive - until that is our mention on the Jo Whiley show on Friday. She had a listener who had used ladybirds on her aphids and then Hannah from Hereford emailed her to say if other listeners want ladybirds - Wiggly Wigglers is where you need to go! Thanks Hannah. I checked it out on Listen Again after a friend told me all about it in the village last night. She's about the same age as me and is still a keen Radio One fan - I moved to Radio Two and Radio Four about fifteen years ago!
