HEIGHT TOP FARM HOLIDAY COTTAGES

Just back from the Anniversary Gala dinner and awards celebrating 50 years of The Forest of Bowland AONB.
Held at The Out Barn, Clough Bottom which is an outstanding venue.
I won't bore you all with the pics but can't resist showing my Hen Harrier pumpkin.
PS. My pumpkin wasn't a winner!

HEIGHT TOP FARM HOLIDAY COTTAGES

Ken finally got what he wanted and mowed for hay Monday 21st. July. Not sure if the hay from the wild flower meadow is up to his "very high" standards. The second meadow which is technically organic is a good crop, this was eaten for a bit longer, otherwise treated exactly the same as the wild flower meadow. So both down and worked in glorious sunshine till Barry came with his fantastic "rig" and baled into traditional bales on Thursday 24th. July.

What a relief! Sarah, The Hay Time Project Officer paid us a visit this week and contrary to my beliefs we have flowers in our hay meadow. The grass is very high and both hiding and protecting the wild flowers. We have had the usual buttercups, daisy, cuckoo flowers etc..We also have the most important Yellow Rattle, Eyebright, Red and White clover and Great Burnet. We have had hares and curlews and we've had swifts in the tower. Thank you Sarah and the children from Higham School for spreading the seed.

After having no BT landline or internet connection for two whole weeks, we are finally able to blog our latest news.

THURSDAY, 12th. SEPTEMBER.  Today with the expert help of year 4, Higham St. John's School, the wild flower seeds were spread in our field.  We hope it can be an ongoing project for the children and look forward to seeing the flowers next June.
