    12 Years on and still learning

    Blog 12th April 2022

    This week Hen Corner celebrated it’s 12th birthday!
    Well, it’s a bit tricky to decide exactly when our way of life was birthed, so the date in the diary is the anniversary of our first blog post when we had given a name to our journey and had begun to share our story.

    A Time For Giving…

    Blog 15th November 2021

    ‘A Time For Giving’ – Yes, I have got Cliff Richard singing in my head…
    As we approach the end of the year, it’s a great opportunity to take stock, give thanks and plan to give gifts to both those we hold dear and those less fortunate than ourselves.

  • As the clocks fall forward, the evenings draw in and we chop wood in preparation for cosy nights in front of the fire, I’m sure I’m not the only one that’s wondering what the next couple of months will bring and how we can hold on to traditions as we continue to navigate current challenges.

    September: Swimming & Sourdough

    Celebrating the Super Bees!

    Blog 23rd August 2021

    This month we are celebrating our super Brentford bees, now where should we begin? We started keeping bees 10 years ago, with our very first colony collected, on loan, in August 2011. ‘How can you borrow a colony of bees?’ I hear you say…

  • You know that we love to produce our own food and can’t wait to get busy preserving fruit and vegetables when in season, allowing us to enjoy them all year round. We’ve harvested all our broad beans, many of which are now in the freezer and have just finished the first batch of broad bean & mint hummus – delicious!
