The Spotlight mini farm

The Spotlight mini farm is now approaching it's second anniversary. Much of the first year was taken up by cleaning the land, making safe some of the buildings and demolishing others. Last year saw us build up our animal and bird stock, as well as creating an area for growing vegetables, although by the time it was completed, it was well into the growing season. The building of a 12' x 25' poly tunnel has meant that we were able to sow and plant in time for this years growing season.

We have had out first produce for this year, a type of radish called "Rainbow", with a variety of colours and strength in taste. This will be the first of many varieties of vegetable we plan to grow.

We are due to have some new animals arrive very shortly, so watch this space!
