Life on the farm has been stunning this month. With the lighter mornings and longer evenings, mid-summer at Foxholes farm is also franticly busy. The animals are busy grazing in the fields producing the best grass fed home reared meat, ready for us to enjoy the sunshine with a sizzling barbeque served with freshly grown salads from our new kitchen garden, washed down with a local beer or glass of wine.
