Community Fund – Howden Clough Cooperative Farm – November Update

Over the last few weeks we have had some really bad bouts of rain. I think we are finally getting on top of the drainage problem (huge relief) as it has been an ongoing problem with the clay base under the soil. 

All our live stock seem happy, although Winter is here it has not been severe as yet. Our hens and ducks are laying quite well and we look forward to our incubation projects in the Spring; it is one of the highlights our students look forward to most. We are hoping to invite the younger children to the farm from various local junior schools to give them an insight to the fundamentals of running a small holding. 

Once again we really appreciate your support which is helping us with many improvements. I am adding some recent photographs taken of our ducks and hens .
