It's a hard life but a happy life.
Sad news in 2015, we had a problem with a fox. Even shutting the birds away before dark and letting them out after sunrise didn't put the fox off, he began visiting during the day. We lost several birds including some of our chicks, ducklings and goslings which we watched grow from egg to chick.
One morning we went to open the houses and let the birds out only to discover over 40 chickens had been killed in another fox attack. This was the final straw and we decided not to replace any of the poultry until our little visitor moved on. We carried on with the pigs and geese, lets face it who is going to argue with an angry goose!
In early 2018 when business began to increase and time was short we decided the best course of action would be to stop rearing the animals. We still supply meat to restaurants, pubs and the general public as we believe it is hard to get good quality produce at a good quality price. We visit Smithfield's market in London daily and deliver Monday - Saturday.
