We had the most wonderful afternoon enjoying our local dairy farm and produce! Just across the road from Fieldgate is a country lane and about a mile down that country lane is a family-run dairy farm. And today they were open to the public as part of Open Farm Sunday.
Apparently it is the fourth year that the event has taken place and there are only about 300 farms that take part.
We were intrigued to find out more about the farm, as Hamish and I have often walked down the lane, but never seen a single cow and we had heard that there are around 550 of them! Where were they hiding, we wondered.
Well, it all became clear when we walked the final stretch up to the farm and there they all were, well some of them anyway. Al said they are the cleanest cows he had ever seen!
