Another week.

Another week has flown by.
 
The weather has been lovely, although there is an autumnal feeling to mornings and evenings. This little bit of rain at the end of the week has been welcome.
 
It's been another busy week here for us in the shop with lunches, cream teas, cake orders and all the usual other stuff.
We were running short of some beef so we were glad to be able to process Jessica, now all chopped, minced and ready for use, all a necessary part of our business which enables us and our customers to know exactly where their food comes from. All of our cattle are grass and silage fed and have an outdoor life throughout the summer months, unlike so many now. They are slow growing and all reach the 30 month threshold for slaughter. All our meals contain our own beef naturally, and many complimentary comments are made about it. We make steak and kidney and steak pies, both of which are hugely popular.
 
Christmas must be coming as the turkeys arrived this week, aagh!
 
The silage pile is growing once again as the boys gather it in from the fields. Our straw arrived during the week ready for winter use. We seem to spend half the year enduring winter, and the other half preparing for it.
