There is a bit of a mystery at Wallacefield. The lambs are supposed to be in the big dipper but when I come down the drive there is no sign of any sheep. Worried now I go round the back to find the gate open and no sign of lambs.

Today we are having a scything course at Wallace Field. The Monday gang and myself are being taught the finer points of slicing and dicing with the grim reaper's favourite implement.

For the last 8 or 10 years we haven’t lambed or calved at all because the butchery takes up so much time. We used to lamb about 300 sheep and calve about 70 cows, but with the decrease in stock prices and the time involved it made sense to just buy in stock to fatten. The tides have changed though, and with the prices of stock thriving at the moment, and also because I am back at home to provide an extra pair of hands, we have decided to tentatively get back into breeding!

Hi everyone, thanks for taking the time to read my blog. I thought I would use this first entry to introduce myself, and give a bit of background to the farm, and our journey to becoming organic. I hope to use my blogs to give you an insight into what goes on at our family farm and a few updates on the rugby too!
