Cafe Build 6

It has been all go at the farm over the last couple of weeks!  The contractors have been digging a trench from the road to the cafe, to connect it to the utilities.  As you can imagine, this has made the farm rather muddy. The goats were very interested in the trench and tried to climb in, when they were on the way to their field.

We were hoping the excavators would make an exciting archaeological discovery, but the only thing they have found so far, is a large stone.

The scaffolding has now been removed from the cafe, and we can really see how it is going to look.

Soon it the contractors will begin completing the interior and fitting out the cafe.

Farm Hands – Saturday 10th January ……. a busy day indeed!

Today we were lucky enough to have 4 Farm Hands in both our morning and afternoon groups so we were able to get lots of work done!

This morning we practiced our animal handling, cleaned out the rabbit pen, fed the pigs some carrots, collected the eggs and enjoyed some well earned hot chocolates.

This afternoon we mucked out the big chicken shed (a bit of a stinky job!), introduced some new chickens into the flock and herded them all into their freshly made beds.

Good work all round!! 🙂
