How Time Flies
We missed out on sending a Christmas Newsletter but what better time to do it than at the beginning of a new year. Over the last few weeks winter has finally arrives at Roundoak after one of the wettest period.
Most of the cattle stock which included Highland and Sussex have had to be brought undercover not due to the state of the grass but the saturated soil. The Roundoak herd of Highland Cattle continues to grow and together with the Sussex the combined cattle stock stands at around 132 with calves on the way.
The Hebridean, North Ronaldsay and Boreray sheep should all be due to lamb during February and March as the farming cycle turns round again for another year.
The farm is also expanding its involvement in tourism and holidays with already having taken bookings from caravan and motorhome owners. The farm is expanding its number of pitches and is also creating a new site at its sister farm near Ulcombe. What is planned at both Roundoak and Ulcombe should prove to be an exciting year.
