Many thanks to Lindsay and her colleagues from Communisis for their hard work on Tuesday as they moved tonnes of top soil and play bark on the farm and grounds, filling up lots of new raised beds ready for planting this summer.

Once again, Barclays has ‘come up trumps’ for Farfield Farm having brought a team of volunteers (and a grant) for a day of labouring. They repaired rotten raised beds, transformed the fruit cage and built a dozen new raised beds to the left of the top polytunnel. It was a magnificent effort! Many, many thanks!

Years 5 and 6 carried on visiting the farm in the winter. They spent time planning seed orders and crop rotation. There wasn’t much to harvest but these Y5 children did harvest some Jerusalem Artichokes. Do you know their nickname?

We haven’t done any blogging for a long while, but we have had another successful year! See the photos below for what we have been up to this year.

Children and staff (and the bees) have been busy up at Farfield Farm. These photographs show how the raised beds and other areas of planting looked on 22nd April 2015. As children from Reception and Year 1 have been visiting this week, and next, I took these photographs so that when they come again in the height of summer they can see how much things have grown.
