What is happening at the farm?

We harvested all the garlic! All 20k of them. We had the whole team out in the field pulling garlic stocks and cleaning off the soil before setting them to dry out and cure for a few weeks.

This week was also our first harvest of field cucumbers, a personal favourite!

And the never-ending tasks of harvesting and weeding the fields so our crops can have enough space and sun to thrive.
