Summer

“Signs of Summer are everywhere.  A good time to walk in beautiful countryside or explore traditional villages, with fetes and seasonal events aplenty.”

The lambs are enjoying life out on the fields, chasing up and down and doing vertical jumps every evening.  The senior sheep are newly-shorn in anticipation of warm summer weather and are enjoying a flush of new summer grass.  The next big task on the farm is haymaking to feed the sheep through Winter and into the lambing period in early Spring.

Lengthening daylight hours have brought the Laced Wyandotte and Speckled Sussex hens back into lay, with enough surplus eggs to begin selling from the farm gate and the prospect of broody hens raising chicks in the weeks ahead.

Signs of Summer are filling the valley, with the first hatch of swallows due soon, hares boxing in the field in front of Hareley Barn and increasing numbers of woodland and grassland butterflies.  The valley is filled with birdsong every evening, the cackle of green woodpeckers contrasting with the trills and warbles of mistle thrushes.

Hareley Barn benefits from being an individual property with its’ own entrance.  It has a new smart EV charging point which is compatible with all electric cars so EV drivers visiting us now don’t have to worry about running out of charge or stopping over at in-transit rapid charging points before arrival.  Hareley Barn also now has a dedicated FTTP (Fibre To The Premises) broadband supply offering 30Mbs.

The independent shops in the nearby town of Bromyard, three miles away, are handy for guests’ needs whilst on holiday and include two craft butchers and delicatessens and two bakeries that bake on the premises.  It’s a good time of year to eat out at one of the many traditional inns in the area.  The Black & White Village Trail has beautiful villages to explore (and more inns!).  The Conquest Theatre in Bromyard and Malvern Theatre offer evening entertainment and a basket of traditional board games and selection of books offer a relaxing evening in.
