Well, Kirkcudbright is celebrating with the festival of light, the town looks amazing with all the displays, light projections, trees in the Soaperie gardens lit up along with the shops and house windows lit up in a display of glory. Here down at Ross Bay we are more familiar with the real dark skies, no

Taking a pet for a walk…….

Well, just as I was getting the tea out of the oven, minding my own business there was a tap on the window……….Stephen and his animal!!  He was just taking it out for a walk on the halter and teaching it to stand correctly for the showring.  We just caught this nice photo as they

Straw here and straw there………

Well, got some combining done in Yorkshire and we have been efficient at having it delivered up here to stock up for Winter.  Barley straw is used for both feed and bedding up here on the farm.  The cattle enjoy the roughage of it mixed and chopped up in with the silage, as well as

Four leaf clover – good luck everyone…..

Whilst out walking the dogs, David was inspecting the meadows for the newly drilled seeds, and look what he found, yes a four leaf clover.  The animals really enjoy eating the clover whether it be in the fields, or whether it has been cut and made into Winter feed. We have opened a new holiday

Wow……..look at that moon!

Dry ground equals muck spearing on the farmland! Our bedding from winter is all loaded into the rota spreader and spread across the fields to make the grass grow. A natural fertiliser which also adds soil depth for the grass roots to make growing much better. Green grass equals happy contented cows and sheep (husband

Dinner time!

Well it seems to be that time of year again, Winter time.  The clocks have gone back an hour so it gets dark earlier.  Most of the cows are loose housed in the sheds for winter time, enjoying their silage, and sheltering from some of the wind and rain.  It feels a little like Spring

The view from the office in June!

Well I have to say this is one of our favourite views, looking down the lighthouse field, or so we call it, and overlooking Ross island.  It is a little haven of contentment, peace and quiet.  You really could be anywhere when you just look out to sea.  A picnic overlooking the island is a

How is that for a view from Ross Farm?

The beautiful Isle Of Man, just sat there in the sea.  It looks so close sometimes and as clear as a bell yet other times hidden from our view by the weather.  What a beautiful place we live when we can see so much and so far without leaving the farm.  It is no wonder
