**UPDATE**

We are now regulars again at Roath, Riverside, Usk, and Rhiwbina but have sadly had to give up Caerphilly and Porthcawl.  We can only stretch ourselves so far!

At last, we have a taste of summer - sunshine and warmth to get that grass growing.  It has been a very late spring at Penrhiw - the altitude factor really came into play this year - there is a lot more grass on Cefn Coed / Fforest with lots of silage already made at Gelli Farm - home of the Raw Milk.   It will be several weeks yet before we can even think of hay making on Penrhiw.   Lambing and calving is done and dusted for the moment - the next big sheep job is shearing.  We have a new bull "Easty" who has been introduced to some heifers and will join the main herd soon.  Sadly Nando did not stay here long - he gave us too much grief at calving time with some very big calves.  We had too many sleepless nights.  
Enjoy the summer - we'll try to make the updates more regular
