Haymaking

Monday, August 18th 2014

Last week our wild flower meadow was cut for hay. The farmer has been back today to turn this, helping to dry the cut grass and spread wildflower seeds across the meadow. He will be back again tomorrow to turn the hay again and is hoping to bale it later this week (as long as the rain holds off!)

Once the hay is baled and taken away we will have Belted Galloway returning to graze this area through until late autumn. As the cattle move about they will create bare patches of soil across the meadow, which will help seeds to germinate in the spring.
