The latest new arrival at the farm is Lilly.
She is a Anglo-Nubian goat and the smallest of triplets born at 1am on Sunday morning, she is living in the house at the moment as she was very small and weak and would not of survived if left with Mum and her two brothers in the barn, she is about half the size of the boys.
Hopefully she will rejoin them soon, she is now much stronger and drinking well, and is now going for longer between feeds, she loves to curl up on my knee and sleep just like a cat.
These are some of our outdoor reared free range Berkshire Pigs in the early morning mist.
Berkshire Pigs are a rare breed pig, and were once kept by the Royal Family at Windsor Castle, they are a wonderful tasting pork, with marbled flesh for a moist succulent flavour and just the best crackling.
Apollo is our working boar and the daddy to all the pigs we breed here at Pitmans Farm
The first broody Goose of the year, this Goose decided she would make her nest the the barn, let’s hope she hatches her eggs ok with us going in and out all the time.
Busy day at Pitmans today, cold-room stocked with 2 Berkshire pigs and a Dexter steer ready for butchering, 18kg of Pork Sausages and 4kg of Beef Sausages made, Bacon slicing in the morning, then just have to vac pack everything ready to sell. All available to buy from the farm or we will be at Cullompton Farmers Market on Saturday 10th March.
