In this episode join Heather and Phil as they take a lovely bank holiday walk up to one of our pastures and discuss our herd of cattle and our new calves. After Heather answers one of your questions about Worm Composting.
Firstly Heather and Phil discuss our Bokashi Active Bran, what it's used for and how we produce in on the farm.
Then get an audio tour of our farm, as they walk up through the yard and fields onto our pasture, where we have our herd of cows as they have been turned out for the summer. They discuss cow poo in length, how to know if you have a healthy cow and calf, the different types of grass needed for different types of cow and the yearly cycle of our cows.
After, Heather answers "What is worm compost and how do I make it". She explains what makes worms so good for composting, why we use Red and Dendra worms for composting and how you can get started.
At this difficult time we are not allowing visitors onto Lower Blakemere Farm, but don't fret you can still get a peek into life on the Wiggly farm with our New Wiggly Podcast! If you're as sad as we are about The Archers skipping a day, then we've got your Friday fix right here.
Each Friday, join the Gorringes (The Archers of Blakemere) for a new episode - including Heather's wiggly updates, the farming catch-up with Farmer Phil, the return of the (now older) Monty Cast and lots of other interviews!
So run a bath (or whatever you do when you listen to podcasts) settle in and let us invite you for a slice of country life from the heart of Herefordshire.

Here at Wiggly HQ we are always keen to support wildlife and we know you are as well. Bringing our gardens to life has always been a fundamental principal of what we do – whether that is using worms or micro-organisms to compost our waste or simply feed the birds.
We realised early on we needed to do our bit here to help these situations and so we have pledged our support in two ways:
1: We will give £1 for every order over £30 received during this crisis
2: We will add a box onto our order form where you the customer can add a donation which we can add to the fund.This is going really well and so far we have accumulated over £1000 and so we are ready to give out the first set of grants.
