Big thank you

We'd like to thank all the people who volunteered at the farm and kept things ticking over whilst our Head Grower was away on paternity leave for two weeks at the beginning of April. These include Andy, Jill, Yvonne, Viv, Ian, Tim, Mark, Chris, Sonja, Martin, Ben, Anne, Charlie, Shelley, Jenny, and I'm sure there are more too! A big thank you to you all for helping put the community into the farm.

Derek Thomas MP visits the farm.

Our local MP, Derek Thomas, spent a morning at the farm last week, meeting volunteers and staff, and finding out about what we do. He returned with his family a few days later to adopt ten of our old chickens, taking them to live in their backyard.

Pauline, Eidan and Bethony.

Pauline from Germany, Eidan from Romania, and Bethony from Leeds via Falmouth, have all left the farm over recent days after staying with us and volunteering as wwoofers. We'd like to thank them all for their hard work during their stays, and wish them well in their onward endeavours.

Re-homing hens

The community farm is looking for new homes for some of our oldest hens, pictured above. They are now three years old, but are still laying some eggs, and are very used to humans and being in the open air. They will make ideal small-holding or back-yard hens, or pets. We are asking for a small donation to the community farm for each hen. Please contact us on 01736 788454 for more information or to arrange collection.

This Bosavern Community Farm blog has recently passed the milestone of 100,000 all-time views. Thank you to everyone who has looked at our blog, and please keep doing so! You'll find lots of recent news about the farm on here, and also information about when and how we do things in case you are interested in growing your own, plus details of forthcoming community events.

Lindy, Stephie and Rich

We'd like to say a big thank you to Lindy from Singapore, Stephie from Malta, and Rich from the UK, for coming to the end of Cornwall to volunteer as Wwoofers on the community farm in March. We really appreciate your help, and wish you all the best in your onward travels.
