This was our second Crafts In The Barn at Lynchets Farm and yet again we had a wonderful array of locals crafts. Thanks to all those who supported we manage to raise £466 for the St Swithun's Church Bell Restoration Fund
Harvest is in full swing. The Oil Seed Rape crop was good and met it's specifications so we are waiting for lorries to come and take it away and better still to get paid for it!
The wheat is still on going and although the crop showed great promise, as with many other farms this year, the grain quality and yield is a bit disappointing.
Our first homebred Lincoln Red heifer calf was born on Wednesday 13th June 2012. We have named her Belstead Ruby (R is the letter for all calves born in this year). She will be the first of our herd to carry the Belstead Prefix. We hope she will be followed by another in August when our new cow Hemingby Bridget is due.
Thanks to everyone who supported Crafts in the Barn we raised over £270 for the Church Bell Restoration Fund.
