Down on the farm - Summer 2019

This time last year we were sweltering in the hottest June for decades - but in 2019, things are a little more predictable.

Summer is here which means Nick is busy on the farm while our guests are out and about enjoying the county.

How we're helping the bees

“If the bee disappeared off the face of the Earth, man would only have four years left to live.” Albert Einstein. Whether Einstein really said this or not, and whether he's right, the bees are in trouble. But why should we care? And what can we do about it?
