Phase 4 buildings

Phase 4+

Posted in Farm on Thursday 18th July 2019 at 5:28pm

We are at last on the final phase of our building project at Old Walls that we started back in 2005. We have been steadily replacing our old 1940’s buildings and making the yard fit for purpose and compliant with regulations set by DEFRA.

We now have a covered cattle yard and isolation box with protected drive in feed passage, a drive in workshop to enable machines to be mended day and night in wet, dry, hot or cold weather conditions with washing facilities, a shed to store winter bedding and machinery and finally a concreted yard around the buildings to avoid muddy conditions in winter to avoid soil erosion. Maybe as we approach the official retirement age we can finally stop building and laying concrete and enjoy the ease of the workplace we have created!
