A huge thank you to everyone who spend last weekend battening down the hatches at the farm in preparation for Storm St Jude.
The scene this afternoon was far less catastrophic than I had feared: all the animals were fine, and their houses still in place, well done to the Sunday animal house securing team, it all worked a treat. Here is Graham’s patented technique for using a spiral dog anchor to hold down a chicken house:
Because this is what happened to an unoccupied chicken house that wasn’t pinned down!
Although much of the mesh and black plastic had been blown off the crops, none of it had blown away which is, frankly incredible: well done Shirley and Angela who spend Sunday afternoon lugging enormous logs to weigh both down!
