In the spring, now that the sun is shining, we give the pastures a little TLC to help promote the grass and herb growth ready for our cows over the coming seasons.

Firstly we walk around and weed any unwanted plants such as thistles and docks.

Then we chain harrow the ground which pulls any old or dead grasses out, allowing younger grasses to spread and come through.

Then we roll the ground with a big heavy drum roller that pushes stones into the ground to consolidate the topsoil.

All this is done to ensure we provide high quality old fashioned pastures that our cows love.
