Our stories

Our brilliant Co-Farmer Kirsty has set up a blog to give an insight into our day-to-day on the farm. The articles and pictures posted on this page are from her own experiences and she hopes to make new Co-Farmers feel more secure on their first visit by relating to some of her own thoughts.

We have kept her description of what to expect when you first visit at the top of this page so it can be found nice and easily!

Over to you, Kirsty…
