Spring farm news

Another busy period of time at the farm, lots of preparation for the year ahead!

We’ve been busy with the new growing season at The Oak Tree with lots of clearing of old crops, mulching new beds and of course sowing literally thousands of seeds. Our smaller polytunnels have new doors and are full of leafy spring greens! 

Work parties have varied between gloriously sunny and surprisingly wet, but everyone’s enjoyed getting stuck in whatever the weather. We’ve done a lot of work on our fruit gardens and rhubarb beds so should get decent crops from these this year, and the flower gardens are looking very tidy as they also gear up for the growing season.
