A bit of fleece MOT as the hedges have been cut recently and there is an abundance of loose brambles...we do this to make sure the girls are comfortable but also to allow our wool to be processed as little as possible before being sold, keeping au naturale. Our hedges are only trimmed every 2-3 years to keep the wildlife happy.

Did you know it is British Wool Week?

Run by The Campaign for Wool, there is a month long celebration of all things wool.

⭐️ We don’t think there is anything better than the beautiful fleece of the Wensleydale Longwool, with its glorious lustre, kemp free and as soft as butter - it is both desirable by crafters in lock form and spinners and then knitters when spun

⭐️ We have lots of great members doing brilliant things with their Wensleydale wool and fleeces, feel free to post below and we will try to showcase them over the next month on our socials.

Introducing Aubrey, our first Oxford Down ram (named after Aubrey de Vere, 1st Earl of Oxford in the mid-twelfth century). Oxford's are our local native breed and are classified as a breed 'at risk' by the Rare breeds survival trust. He will run with our ewes that don't quite make the standard for purebred pedigree breeding. #nativebreeds #rarebreedsheep #oxforddown

7 days ago we were haymaking in 30 degree heat, now it's cooler and damp. Changes in weather affect farmers in many ways, what our next task is, financially, and sometimes mentally too, most of us don't know if we are going to earn at the end of the year, if anything, but we do it because it's what we do and most of the time we love it. #buybritish #farmlife #YourHarvest #backbritishfarming

Hay making is done for this year!!
Both our cattle and sheep will be enjoying this once housed this winter.
We have made baled silage from the headlands which are sheltered by the big hedges - great for the wildlife, but not so good for drying cut grass!

Local beekeeper Ludgershall Honey has installed some hives in our cade lamb paddock and we have just had our first taste of Chilton Grounds Honey (might be the best honey in the world..)!! Not sure what the lambs think of them, but the bees have been happily investigating our hedgerows. They're incredibly important for all plant (and subsequently animal) life so we are very glad to have them here at the farm.

Livestock farms delivering High-value Natural Capital by way of Swallows and Martins, plus much more besides. What a fantastic place to work (yes, I have surveyed this farm and the wider parish) and a place to enjoy wildlife whilst trying to make a living off the land. Way to go, Duncan Parker and Chilton Grounds Farm.
This week is Wool Week. A week celebrating British Wool! Here's 5 reasons why it so important to support the British wool industry: 🐑 Last year fleeces averaged 32p/kg with some hill breeds as low as 15p/kg and the NSA reports that this year’s prices may be down 50%. 1/3rdof the total wool sent to the wool board last year was unsold. These prices struggle to cover the unavoidable costs of shearing for most farmers. 🐑 Only 5-10% of wool clothing products in the UK are from home-grown farmers, the majority imported from the southern hemisphere from sheep breeds with finer wool. 🐑 The import of wool when so much of our own is wasted adds unnecessary carbon footprint to an eco-friendly fibre. It is a natural by-product and 100% biodegradable, it is a great alternative to the plastic products (e.g. polyester, nylon) that dominate the market whilst supporting British farming. 🐑 The Welsh government has committed to using more British wool for public building insulation, hopefully leading the way for the rest of the UK to follow. 🐑 Wool is breathable, durable, absorbs and releases moisture dependent on the air around it and traps air leading to great insulation. Next time you're buying clothing, bedding, carpets, insulation, see if there is a British wool alternative! See Chilton Grounds Farm, our farm vet Charlie's home farm, to source British wool or the following businesses who have Wool week discounts: https://www.britishwool.org.uk/wool-week-2020. Feel free to tag any other British wool businesses in the comments below.
