At long last some lovely warm weather, even if todays course students are complaining its a bit too warm!

The last few months have been difficult with the weather keeping us on our toes. Thankfully, we managed to finish cutting and we have planted another 5 acres at Westonzoyland by hand in the last few weeks, this weather should give them a good start now.

Mike and Jack have also been busy with the maintenance of the willow beds ready for the new crop to start growing.

Trimming the withy bed.

 The white willow season is almost upon us and we need to bring in all the harvested willow, so we are hoping it stays dry for a while yet. Seems like the boys are going to be very busy for the next few months.
Amanda and I have  been busy with school visits and corporate events here too but we were also lucky enough to have a work experience student Lauren with us over the past week. She has been a great help and has gained office experience, participated in a corporate workshop and helped with the tourism side of our business, taking people on tours around the farm and explaining what we do here at Musgrove Willows.

Keep smiling Lauren and Amanda , it helps! : )

Lauren has even said she’d like to come back in the summer. She must be mad! 

We still have a few places left on the morning session of our Saxons Day workshop on June 1st. so if you are looking to do something a bit different over the half term holiday why not come along with the children and see how things were in the day of the Saxons.

Pre- Booking is essential so please ring Ellen or Amanda on 01278 691105 or 01278 699162 to book your space. We look forward to seeing you.
