Sorry it’s been such a long time since my last post but a lot has been happening here on the farm to keep me away from my computer. The fields are all empty now except for stacks of straw bales in some wheat fields as harvest was completed last weekend. We’ve also cut all the chamomile and the essential oil is now being cleaned, dried and analysed for quality in Kent. Our new chamomile field yielded better than I expected, I think the long, hot, sunny days we had in August boosted the oil content of the new plants. On a personal front, we had a family wedding at the beginning of August and a visit from our Australian family, including our latest granddaughter Evie Bea.
We will be looking at new outlets for our products over the next few months so keep an eye out for announcements on Farmers’ Markets on our Facebook page. We’re also looking at adding a new product to the range so check back soon for more news!
