We were very impressed with all the hardy campers who decided to visit on the wettest and windiest weekend of the year.  Some even survived to enjoy the pleasant spell that followed the passing of Hurricane Katie.  The field is bearing up well considering the amount of rain we’ve had, and a spot of maintenance over the next couple of weeks should have any wheel marks sorted out.

The downpour on Thursday has caused the cherry crop to start to split so its no good for sale and will be juiced instead.  We will shortly be adding Loddington Farm cherry juice to the on-site menu!

We now keep supplies of locally produced charcoal for sale on the farm.  The charcoal is of the finest quality and is made from from traditionally coppiced hornbeam and chestnut.  I’ve used it in my barbecue and it is fantastic stuff.

The grass in the middle of the meadows used for camping is growing well with the recent combination of rain and sunshine. The grass is full of wild flowers and will make super hay in a few weeks time. I would suggest bringing wellies for the morning trip to the loos as the long grass collects a lot of dew!
