Rachel and the Christmas Lights

By Rob 3 years ago

Every year we decorate the Christmas Trees at the Old Market Shopping Centre in Hereford - which obviously involves many hundreds of lights, which we have to then take down just after Christmas - and some people wrap them away tidier than others :)

Indigo Wheat in Farmer Phil's British Mix

By Rob 3 years ago

This week our Wiggly Weekly Highlight is about Farmer Phil's British Mix - and the Indigo Wheat that is grown on our Farm! Heather and Farmer Phil venture right to the top of Lower Blakemere Farm and see where the wheat is grown - and almost get blown away!

Live Mealworms – FAQs

By Rob 3 years ago

Live foods are absolutely best for garden birds to feed their young. Lots of different species of birds love mealworms. House sparrows are often first to the tray, but you can expect robins, wrens, blackbirds and tits to be queuing up for their daily treat. Live food should be fed all year round. With our changing weather patterns, insects are often in short supply, so having a stock of live food in your fridge or garage (or shed) can be a life-saver for both parents and fledglings.

We LOVE Niger Seed (+ So will your Goldfinches!)

By Rob 3 years ago

This week, our Wiggly Weekly highlight is all about Niger Seed! This seed is especially loved by goldfinches - one of the most beautiful British birds about! It is very small, but high in oil, so ideal for smaller birds with small beaks and a high metabolism.
