Let's hope it's drier than February!

March is the start of the show season for us, with Hadlow Lambing weekend in the middle of the month. It was extremely cold and a bit snowy there last year for lambs, visitors and workers, so hopefully it'll be dry and sunny this time!

As we have been asked at markets for butter so many times, from March we will also be bringing along the delicious Cowslip butter made by our fellow Kentish cheesemakers, the Cheesemakers of Canterbury. Come along and try.

Dairy farm news - the cows and youngsters can smell the grass growing now and are impatient to get back out in the fields. We might need to do a few fencing repairs first though! The storms have bought down a couple of trees in our woodland which have fallen onto the fences as well as taking some sheets off the shed roofs - jobs for next week I think.

It was quite exciting to have the BBC Countryfile crew here for filming last week, I think the cows behaved themselves! It was one of the few dry sunny February days so at least the cameras stayed dry. Tune in on March 2nd to see John Craven helping us make a batch of our Kentish Blue.
