New year and New plans

January 13, 2013 | Oakfield

Well January 2013 has started a little drier but it looks as if we may have a cold snap…frozen pipe alert!

Converting the stables has started. This will be our new meat processing area and will link directly to the cold room.  Waiting for doorways to be cut through. Wiring and plumbing in in place.

House build remains slow, still waiting for the roofing contractor to give us a date. No date by Monday then new contractor will have to  be found.

Animals are nice and  snug in the dry, but the fields are so very wet.  Unless we have a a very warm and dry spring it will be some time before the pigs are running free outside. At the moment they are restricted to a small area between the barns and the fields.

We have found the cause of the flooding in the yard….a concrete breaker and brute force revealed a broken drain, cleared and now running freely. Ducks are missing their  temporary pond’ just outside just outside their pen
