The carpenters came

criag feeding the pigs under a watchful eyeIn November we were very blessed with a work party of talented men who came and gave their time over one weekend. As they all had good carpentry skills we gave them a wish list “…and it was so…” The farm was buzzing with activity as they measured, cut, drilled and hammered. Each carpenter worked with a labourer on different projects with great precision, good humour and much banter.

At the end of the two days the Gloucester Old Spot pigs had a sturdy dry floor in each pig arc, giving them a warmer and dryer place to have their piglets; we have a brilliant bridge over the leat, allowing us easier access to the pond and the pump house now has a door.

We are so very grateful to Phil, Malcolm, Slavik, Antony, Craig and Mark

God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
