Disappointed beyond words!  SEPTEMBER FARM GATE CANCELLED.

Our late kidding season means that there is not enough milk to open our September Farmgate!

My plan is to concentrate on on making our kidding successful and prepare to open with a bang in October.

I cannot apologise enough to our wonderful and loyal customers.

But, sometimes, farming throws stuff at you over which you have absolutely no control!






Waiting for kids to arrive.
