Dear Guests

We had a very busy time in August, lots of campers visited us and it was lovely to welcome families who obviously appreciated the beauty of the area and were able to take advantage of weather as we were lucky to have some sunny weekends during the month.

Following on from last month, I was able to pick some blackberries and make some apple and blackberry crumbles and blackberry jelly - lovely on fresh homemade scones! The farm has been busy with the second cut of silage and some further little calves were born. I have also been trying to make use of the fine days and do some maintenance - staining the gates (not one of my favourite jobs :-) ).

The tea room is making good progress and it is currently looking as though it should be completed by the end of September/early October so I should be busy baking soon!!!

Best wishes
