Harvest time on the farm

It's been a really busy time on the farm. The sheep have been shorn making it a lot cooler for them, not so cool for poor Martin and Tom the shearers though!

We have made five fields worth of round bale silage, which has been wrapped and stacked. Look out for the pink and purple bales. The special coloured wrap - pink supports breast cancer charities and the purple childrens charities.

Today we are mowing and gathering the pit silage. The tractors and trailers are going for it as we have to get it all done before the weather breaks. The grass is collected and tipped into the silage pit, where it is covered until we need to start feeding the livestock in late winter.
