We will be attending a Food Festival at Kibworth Grammar School Hall today with delicious cuts of goat kid, cabrito(goat veal) and adult goat.
The weather looks promising and with fabulous local food and drink on offer, why not come and see us!

Our girls are getting on in their pregnancies!
Our first lambs are due mid-march and some of the ewes are looking very wide! They are being fed a nutritious ration packed with freshly rolled oats to ensure we get healthy lambs and lots of milk.
Our goatlings are in kid for the first time. They are starting to develop little udders now - a sure sign that we have babies on the way! The first kids are due in April and we are really looking forward to it.
All the goats are tucked up in the barn munching on hay, brewers grains and goat nuts.

Unfortunately we won't be attending Oadby Farmer's Market this month. However, we will definitely be there next month.

It's really nice to have some lovely dry weather for a change. This has given us chance to clean out some of the stables and have a long overdue clean up around the yard. We look so much smarter now!
