Every year our daughter’s school holds an agricultural day, where the children have to raise a farm animal and show it at school. Jolan has created a video diary about her calf Cheeky. I think she’s done an awesome job with her idea, have a look and enjoy .
The seasons are changing. Summer went and Easter and Autumn came around. We have been starting to prepare for winter to come.
A walk on our local backyard beach, Muriwai Beach. Home to a gannet colony and lovely black sand with beautiful sunsets across the ocean.
We created quills out of some duck feathers. They have the big advantage that the quill is actually pretty long already. Still not long enough to actually handle them properly though. Shaved some of the vane off and it was much better.
After being rather busy over the last week before Christmas with a film crew on site and the typical “everything needs to be finished by Christmas” work frantic, we are now all truly in holiday mode.
All at Pukeatua Farmstay wishing you a lovely and relaxed time and a Happy New 2021. May it bring prosperity and happiness.
The first days of summer greeted with a mixed bag of weather. The first day was coldish and still wet with quite some wind. But that all eased down on the second day which turned into a nice, dry and hot summer day featuring blue sky and green grass.
Nothing much really has happened over the last few weeks and hence our updates have been rather sparse.
One thing did happen however: Think it really turned spring.
