The pictures above and below show the sheep in the lambing pens.
When the lambs are old enough they can be held together.
The numbers on their sides are for the shepherds to match the lambs to their mothers.

This Light Sussex, one of our native breeds, can trace its history back to Roman times and is a good dual purpose fowl with hens reaching 7 pounds and cockerels 9 pounds. They are good foragers and are laying pale cream coloured eggs.
These Rhode Island Reds originate in the United States and are a little smaller than the Sussex at 6.5 pounds for hens and 8.5 pounds for cockerels. They are a hardy breed and good layers of brown eggs.
Having inspected their new accomodation both breeds settled down for a feed.

The shop at Borough Market is undergoing a major refit. As this is the first shop Tim opened in 1996 we felt it was time for a revamp. The shop is open whilst the work is being done so why not pop in and take a look We will post some pictures as soon as the work is finished.
The barn at Grange Farm is a hive of activity as 6 new hen houses are being built by Tom, our joiner.
In keeping with our rare breed principles these will be used to house Maran, Rhode Island Red, Light Sussex, Araucana and Welsummer hens all of which we have chosen for their varied coloured eggs from the terracotta of the Welsummers to the blue of the Araucana- more on these later. Our hen houses are copies of the type of hen ,house found in this part of Yorkshire in the 1950's, with night perches and nesting boxes. They are mounted on cast iron wheels so they can be moved around the meadows to give the hens fresh grazing.
As the hens arrive during the course of the summer we will photograph the various breeds and describe their characteristics and egg shell colour.
