The countryside is busy. These last couple of weeks have been a frantic race to get haymeadows mown, tedded (turned over to be dried) and baled before the rain came back again. We were certainly part of that race and have finally managed to get all of our hay made and in the barn out of the wet. Harvest is also in full swing and the lovely low murmur of combines working can be heard for miles on a still evening. The ewes are now on the Wittenham Clumps, we moved them through the woods last week which is our favourite sheep manoeuvre. You can see the views the ewes are enjoying and read more on our blog http://www.camillaandroly.blogspot.co.uk/

The lambs are doing particularly well on the amount of grass which is continuing to grow and we are proud of how our meat is looking. We’re taking orders now for September and we would like to offer the first five orders we receive an extra pack of chops each! (on orders of over £25). To place an order, here are a few options –

Indian summer September pack – 1 whole butterflied leg (bone out, perfect for the BBQ), 1 half boned and rolled shoulder, 1 French trimmed rack, 4 loin chops, 5 burgers – £50 save £5

Small lamb pack – 1 half leg joint, 1 half shoulder joint, 2 chump chops, 2 loin chops, 4 cutlets, 500g mince, neck fillet (great for curries) – £40 save £7

Medium lamb pack – 2 half leg joints, 2 half shoulder joints, 2 chump chops, 6 loin chops, 1 French trimmed rack (or split into cutlets), 500g mince, neck fillet (great for curries), optional liver, kidney and heart – £70 save £22
