Caution: Farmers at Work!

Lots have happened in the last couple of weeks including the fact that we have a new farm manager, Gabe, on board who has proved to be a very welcome member of the team! We continue to tend to the farm, however as promised, we have all been getting down and dirty, preparing the site for expansion which given the scale and location, both above and below ground, is more than a bit of a task. As well as ‘farm manager’ duties, we’re quite sure Gabe is thrilled to have joined us at this pivotal point which allows him to add painter, decorator and general muscle man to his CV 😉

The site generally hasn’t had much TLC since WW2 so it’s all proving very challenging but we’re enjoying the team work, banter and seeing it all come together. Here we are sweating, carrying wood and handling ‘man tools’ as we (along with Gabe and intern Jordan) rub sun lotion over ourselves. All in the name of undertaking the ‘above ground’ work of preparing the yard and laying the foundations for what will be the farm office at surface level…
