News from Penrhiw Farm July 15th 2020

Hello.  Seems ages since my last email so here's an update on what we are doing at the moment.

Markets:  we are not attending any Cardiff markets at the moment..  When they restarted, we were simply too busy with deliveries and pre-orders to attend and you, our valued customers, told us you wanted the deliveries to continue.  Have attitudes changed  ??  There has been a drop off in orders and we are wondering if our customers are expecting us to be in the markets.  Feedback please.  Usk continues as a "click and collect" style market but the option to buy without pre-order will be trialled this Sat.   Preorders are appreciated however as it helps with our preparation.  

Farms:   busy as usual with all our activities totally dependent on the weather.  We've made some hay, some haylage (was supposed to be more hay but the forecast was wrong !!), peas and oats silage (on Cefn Coed), shorn the ewes (after a couple of false starts - again it rained !!), weaned the early lambs on to some fresh aftermath - the lush regrowth after cutting the hay, an annual TB test on Cefn Coed - thankfully all clear ........

Please let us know what you would like us to do - we are going to have to give the market organisers lots of notice if you would like us to return soon.
