The care farm has welcomed a new member of staff, Kelly Hastings, to the project.
The cafe and shop are gearing up for Christmas with 3 weeks of Christmas meals and party nights planned. The weekends have remained fairly busy but footfall during the week is still currently more limited.
5 sheep have been sold to Bolton Council and are now living on winter hill. The others will probably not be sold and will be joined by a number of new lambs in the spring with the aim of buying different varieties for education.
The chicken fence works are nearly complete but egg numbers are still low and a new system will be implemented to make sure eggs are transferred to the shop more efficiently. The pigs will now be kept over winter.
