Farm Maintenance

The dish drains have been dug, the fields fertilised and limed, and new grass seed drilled in.  We’ve had a few short spells of rain and hopefully in the next few weeks we’ll see the new grass starting to grow.  The alpacas won’t be able to eat the tasty new pasture until spring so will be confined to fewer paddocks over winter, and some will be wintering off site so they are still well fed.  They’ll no doubt be asking to go into the new pasture – they’ll assemble at the gate and look longingly at the unavailable grazing: “the grass in the next paddock is greener”.
