Shimpling Park October 2021
We are preparing the fields for next year's crop and working to incorporate lots of organic matter into the soils to feed the new plants and lock up carbon. Unpredictable rain is making planting hard but we are making good progress. And we have harvested the first UK organic crop of chia seed. The new rams have arrived and the ewes are getting ready for the mating season. (Warning: brief mating images included.) The wool has finally been picked up and the school visits are noisy and fun.
