Having lost Hetty and last years hatchlings we've decided to get a couple of young hens to join our little flock. We went looking this morning and we think we've settled on a very beautiful Black Rock and a rather pretty little mixed breed. Decisions, decisions....
I'm incredibly lucky because my family and I live in town but also work in an orchard growing apples, pears and plums. We're only a few miles from the sea so we get the very best of British Town, Country & Coastal Living.
We have dogs and cats, horses, ferrets, chickens and quail, a tortoise, a parrot and a jackdaw called Sparrow who was rescued from the orchard with a broken wing.
We have a lot of fun.
We're passionate about the British countryside, wildlife, gardening, antiques, animals, books, art, design,vintage, home, food, living (and trading) in an ethical and environmentally sustainable way.
