The Fruits of our Labour

Above is a picture of our Hebridean ram tucking into a rack full of hay that we made in the summer. It is very satisfying to see the sheep enjoy the fruits of our labours.

We will be getting our taste of the results of our work too. On Christmas Day our family will be tucking into roast lamb from one of our home-bred Shetland x Hebridean lambs. The lamb was reared entirely on grass and hay here at the Trust. The meat we have tried so far was delicious.

Amazing stuff, grass!
