Autumn

“The first day when a light mist blurs the outlines of the trees across the valley signals the beginning of Autumn for us.”

The trees changing to gold and red sometimes takes months, depending on the weather, with the oak trees generally last to change.  Redwings fly in from Scandinavia in sixes and sevens at first then flocks of hundreds fly up the valley, descending on the hawthorn trees and stripping them of berries in a few hours.

The village fetes are replaced by Harvest Festivals and we start planning which ewes will go to the ram for next Spring’s lamb crop – you’re always planning ahead on the farm!

There are many walks to be taken around the nearby National Trust properties of Brockhampton, Berrington Hall and Croft Castle and the Black-and-White Village Trail, with its fine churches and craft galleries, is very beautiful at this time of year.
