A busy time at Greatworth Hall

We cannot believe the changeable weather we’re experiencing this year. We have thoroughly enjoyed the sunshine and managed with the odd splashes of rain and even snow and hail today!

Lambing is well underway - at this point we have lambed approx. 50 of our 240 sheep which are in lamb. We are pleased that so far most are growing well and we have even managed to get some outside living on the grass already. All doing well, lets hope the sunshine stays!

The lambs spend the first day and a half in a small pen with their Mums.

Other exciting news on the farm is that we are currently advertising for someone to come and work with us on the farm. Look at our job advert here. If you are interested in applying or know someone who is then please do get in touch!

The education centre has welcomed visits from a couple of new school groups and education groups  which has been fantastic - we’ve had a great time introducing children to our little lambs.

We have now got a flyer of all our events ready to be shared and put up on the fridge so that you don’t miss a thing this year! Get the dates in your diaries

Sadly, we are saying goodbye to a couple of our office tenants who are moving premises or downsizing but it does mean that we now have two office spaces available to let. Again, please do get in touch if you’re interested in working here at Greatworth hall.

I think it’s fair to say that there is lots of change here, but we are looking forward with optimism and hope for 2019. We are enjoying all the work we are doing and feel a sense of adventure as we look to do the above events and welcome others to come and work here on the farm with us and in the offices that we let out. There’s a great sense of community here, particularly since welcoming Rebecca at Hole in the Hedge cafe. HS2 and Brexit are scary because of the unknown but we feel that the best way to carry on is to look for the opportunities in the face of these threats. We are remaining positive.
