Biofuel powered mowers arrive for new orchard

Our new mowers have arrived for the orchard, recently planted with traditional Devon apple varieties.
The mowers are powered by biofuel – the grass in the orchard – and should be almost carbon neutral. We can’t really afford (and don’t understand) this high tech approach so we’ve loaned the technology from our helpful friends at Higher Punchardon Farm. Marvellous – they’ll even do most of the serious maintenance on them. Basically, so long as we can count to 5 and check the water is topped up these should be pretty reliable machines…

The sheep arrive. They’re used to chickens but the chickens are not used to them!
