As lambing is now into its last third, the lambing pens are reducing in number. As hygiene is very important later in the lambing season, we move the pens to cleaner areas after thoroughly disinfecting them.#lambingseason #lambingpens #sheepfarming #wensleydalesheep #zwartbles #nfucountryside #highwelfare #conservationfarming

The ewes are enjoying some fresh grass and sunshine, whilst the lambs are loving their first day outside of the lambing shed!
We keep the ewes and newborn lambs inside for a couple of days to ensure they are feeding well and are without any problems.

The new lights in our refurbished lambing shed have been fantastic, thanks to sparkies Mark and Will. So no need for head torches on the night shift anymore. More have lambed in here than out in the fields in the daytime probably because it's so comfortable out of the wind and rain. Well over half way now! #happysheep #highwelfare

We are very excited to announce our Wensleydale wool has been used by a designer collaborating with the @balenciaga museum in Spain!
The designer, Angus Kramer has done such an amazing job! We haven't seen @kimkardashian rocking our wool yet but we are sure it's still top secret before the big drop!!

Did anyone see Duncan and our farm featuring in the @farmersguardian last week?
He discussed future aims for our sustainable farm working with the environment, with @woodlandtrust and producing efficient cattle, using a @beef_shorthorn_society bull.

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.

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.
