Forda farm is busy lambing it’s pedigree flock of Charollais sheep at the moment. They were scanned in lamb back in October and came into the lambing sheds in December. These lambs are about a week old now. Soon they will have more lambs join them as the rest of the flock continue to lamb. We aim to sell the male lambs as rams, in around, eighteen months time to other farmers to use on their own flocks.We will of course keep a ram or two for our own flock. Not only is it lovely to see the ewes and lambs, if you listen carefully the song of the birds certainly lift the spirits. Spring is definitely just around the corner.
Val has been trying out some new scone recipes during lockdown. These have included Mincemeat scones, Maple and Walnut scones and Chocolate and Marshmallow scones. A couple of the recipes have been taken from the National Trust ‘Book of Scones’ which has 50 different recipes to try out. Who knew there could be so many different variations!
So she could be very busy and will have to watch the scales! They have all been very tasty so far.
Guests may well get the chance to try some when we are able to reopen later in the year. In the meantime keep following us on social media to so what comes out of the kitchen next!
