Our organic oats are growing well and happy with this mediteranean climate. The sunflowers are peeping through, and the apples are set and the lambs are growing well. The ewes were happy to be clipped.
The cottages have all had a freshen up with paint inside and out, they are looking good.
The swans are nesting and waiting on their 'ugly ducklings' to arrive. The king fisher are racing up the Eden.
Our poultry collection has been reduced to Hoot and Mrs Hen due to an unexpected visit from Mr Todd, the fox. Mrs Hen was nesting but the crows pinched her eggs so nature goes on in unpredictable fashion.
Nigel in the village sells organic eggs so that is handy! There is a lovely strawberry farm at Rutherford so time your stay ! Delicious! Julian in Kelso also sells superb fruit and veg and he is based at Klondyk Garden centre.
The Borders are looking beautiful and there are a host of activities from Local Common Ridings, Melrose Book fair to Kelso Show and everything in between.
Cliftonhill Farm grows organic oats which are sold to Hogarths Mill in Kelso for where they get milled before being made into Nairns organic oatcakes - delicious and healthy! We also produce organic lamb and our lambing was in March this year. We grow good grass full of clover and the lambs do well on this. We are members of the Soil Association.
