There has been one thing on everybody’s lips this week – the weather! The mild autumn meant that we we’re actually able to keep the animals out on the farm for a month longer this year, so they only came inside recently but it turns out it was just in time! Our herd is now nice and warm in the barn, bedded in straw grown here on Godminster Farm.
During the winter months they are fed on a mix of red clover, grass, peas and barely. We grow the whole crop together then harvest it at the same time to produce the organic feed for the winter we then add a small amount of organic protein to the mix and this then keeps our herd healthy, happy and warm through the winter.
Unlike the cows we need something with a little more kick to keep us happy and warm through the winter! One great tipple for this is our Bloody Good Mary Gift box, including our Horseradish Vodka, and three cans of spicy tomato juice - really warming on a cold winter’s night. Any online orders of three or more products (going to the same address) will receive a 10% discount – so why not treat someone (or even yourself!) to a Bloody Good Mary, some award winning organic cheddar and our delicious chutney perhaps!
Don’t delay your orders, as in the current weather conditions deliveries are not quite as speedy as normal!
