Have you seen Ben’s videos?

Well what a crazy few weeks! I am sure many of you are in just as much shock as we are. Every day has brought new changes and new challenges, it has been hard to keep up, but we have to say that our team at Fordhall have done us proud. They have rallied round, adapted and supported us where it has been needed.

The shop especially has been extremely busy, even though all other public activities on the farm have now closed. The staff in the shop are working like fire flies. If you see them stood still, then they might end up flopping into a wheelbarrow like Ben here!

In fact, Ben seems to have found his calling in all of this angst and change. He has taken to video blogging on our Facebook page and we highly recommend you take a look if you haven't already seen him!

We've also added Ben's video blogs below, so you can see his witty face updating members of our community with changes onsite due to the daily government guidance.

As the rest of us work from home where possible, Ben's upbeat and charismatic nature is keeping us all going. In contrast, I will try to reinvigorate this blog to keep you in touch with all things Fordhall, and hopefully offer a little light relief to the current world news.

Please bear with me if the updates do not come daily, I have a very active 4 year old at home and there is still work to be done, but I will do my very best to keep in touch with you all.

In the meantime, please stay safe everyone, keep enjoying the skies and the trees, and be kind.

  1. Thank you Ben. It’s lovely to be kept up to date with whats been going on at the farm, especially at this
    difficult time, and I didn’t realise that I could shop online and you could deliver. I will look into that, but as I’m on my own and self isolating I don’t need much; But when I need some meat I will definitely be in touch.
    Well done all of you and it was lovely to see the children with the pigs. I don’t know who was having the best time!
    I was coming up at the beginning of June to stay in one of your yurts with a friend and I was so looking forward to it, but there you are and when this is all over we will rebook and have a great time.
    Regarding the AGM I don’t think I have filled in the form, but I will look into that and get it done.
    Keep well and safe all of you. You’re going the right way about it.
