This week our blog is three years old…
Thank you to all our subscribers and regular readers, we are thrilled to have welcomed nearly 50,000 visits. If you’d like to get a taste of the life for real, why not join us on one of our courses? As we celebrate, we remember some highlights of this last year…
A full Season of Courses that have encouraged others to keep chickens, bake and make preserves.
Filming with Omlet has been great fun and several of our films are now on their website.
Hatching Chicks is always a highlight, using Broody Butternut last year and working with St Paul’s School hatching chicks in the classroom.
The National Honey Show where we were thrilled to win Best Honey in London!
We took our produce to the market place at St Faith’s Christmas Fair and completely sold out of our Brentford honey
Our Schools Projects have really taken off, with more in the pipeline
As a regular reader, being featured in Country Living Magazine was a very special highlight for me
It was wonderful to have the Lost in London Book in my hands and a delight that the chapter on City Chicks is based on our experience
Various other magazines have published articles about all the fun that we are having and we are currently talking to others
So another wonderful year that we celebrate with a glass of home-brew and a garden-gathered supper!
- Butternut is broody, but as the bantams are in the Eglu Go, there are no chicks for her this year
- The bees are flying at every opportunity as the weather begins to warm
- Two of our Bee Keeping courses are completely sold out!
Jobs for next week:
- Mowing the lawn for the first time this year
- Catch up with the other bee keepers – it seems the season is delayed
- Take the growing chicks back to school – they are getting quite big now
Join us on the Journey!
