Latest from Penrhiw Farm July 29th 2020

Hello.  A few changes to report.  We are nowhere near as busy with deliveries now so are making our way back to the markets.  We are back at Riverside on Sunday and hope to be back at Roath soon.   Porthcawl is back this Sat too.  Usk continues as usual with preorders and now an opportunity to buy on the day from a small selection of our surplus produce.   We will continue with deliveries in the Rhiwbina area, Caerphilly and locally for the moment.   We look forward to seeing our market customers again.

 

The summer is marching on - we are coming to the end of the grass harvest.  All the hay has been mown at Penrhiw and will, hopefully, bake in the mini heat wave forecast for the next 2 days.  Hay also mown at Cefn Coed too but still more to cut there.  Then we have to wait for the arable crops to ripen praying all the time there is no heavy rain and strong winds to flatten them.  All is looking good despite the dry start in May  - even the peas and barley silage crop on Penrhiw which was sown SO LATE.  

Take care

Penrhiw
