Lovely lunches

We have been using the produce grown at the farm to make lots of lovely lunches. In the picture we had scrambled eggs using our gorgeous organic eggs with home grown spring onions and rocket. We have had endless salad and herbs from our beds and we are enjoying every bite! This week we are making soda bread and nettle soup for lunch. Some members at the project are looking forward to the zingy soup whilst others have opted to bring in a packed lunch!

Introducing Clive

Clive has been coming to Origin for three weeks now and we are very pleased to have him. He is very positive guy and always keen to get involved in everything. He is pretty fearless but he makes me quite nervous when he wizzes around in his wheelchair so fast! In the picture is Clive collecting hazel for our goats, his chair came in useful for carrying it back to the smallholding.

Pygmy goats

The latest members of the Origin family are three little Pygmy goats. They are gorgeous and so much fun to watch. We have been doing lots of research into what they can eat and have been going on goat walks to find hazel, alder and hawthorn (but NOT the berries). We need to venture out a bit and find some oak leaves and some willow as we hear they love those too. They love the house that Jarred and Jess built and have lots of fun claiming up the ladder and onto the roof! I’m sure we will have lots of stories to follow!

Four baby rabbits

All of Amber’s babies have now opened their eye and are running around eating grass at 2 weeks old! We held them for the first time today and their mum was very relaxed. Haven’t yet sexed them, I believe thus can be tricky with rabbits! Looking for loving homes for them now.
