Great Market Prices for Steeple Leaze Farm

Steeple Leaze Farm were commended at the Sedgemoor Auction Centre for a Belgian Blue Heifer being sold as part of 'some of the best cattle seen all year', also gaining top selling price for that day. This is a great achievement for the farm and one we will strive to continue with.

Busy Times

It is fair to say that we are still very busy on the farm with various work still to be done. We had nearly 5,000 lambs born at the beginning of this year which are currently being put out on keep. The ramms have been put out to do their work so fingers crossed we will have another bumper year for lambs next year. We are only two months off lambing again which has come around so quickly! I thought I would show a picture of Jed, one of the working dogs, having some playtime with me. Jed is proving to be a great dog, he is just over two years old and is very keen to learn.

Despite the wet and windy weather we have encountered in the past couple of weeks I managed to capture this shot of just some of the farm on a glorious sunny day. The fields and trees are looking lush and green.

Winter Is Here

Winter has arrived on the farm and so has the wind and rain! Some of the sheep have now gone out on keep for the next few months, giving the fields here a chance to grow and flourish.
