Trevorrick Farm Holiday Cottages, Padstow, Cornwall

🎁🎁🎁DAY FIFTEEN ADVENT COUNTDOWN🎁🎁🎁

I am only a "farmer" in the tiniest sense, though many of our guests refer to Trevorrick as "Melanie's Farm", as I seem to make quite an impression (sorry husband Mike!).

This video is rather long, but beautifully shows a new born calf standing for the first time, and eventually working out which end of mum the milk comes from.

What I think I share any common with all the "proper" farmers who we depend upon to feed us, whether it is vegetables, fruit, or meat, is seeing things grow. Whether from a tiny seed, or a new born animal. always magical and special no matter how many times you have seen it before.

Occasionally our guests are lucky enough to see new born animals too whether calfs, lambs, piglets, ducklings, chicks or goslings. Who know what may happen when you Farm Stay UK for you break away from everyday life.

🎁🎁🎁DAY FOURTEEN ADVENT COUNTDOWN🎁🎁🎁

We purchased our very popular commercial grade, suitable for adults as well as younger folks.................and even piglets, basket swing in July 2017.

Of course the piglets just had to be first to try it out, even though Mummy Sheep was very jealous that she wasn't allowed a go!

The basket swing was made entirely in Cornwall by South West Play.

However I did say I would be announcing an accommodation competition this week, but as you can see I have been a little busy with the advent countdown which has had such a great response.

So I have decided instead I am going to launch our new accommodation competition after Christmas..........to help see in the New Year.

But I have a question and hope you can help. What should the prize be?

Would you prefer the prize to be a 2 night weekend break for 4 people or a 4 night break for two people.

Vote below and then comment with your choice.

🎁🎁🎁ADVENT COUNTDOWN POST TWELVE🎁🎁🎁

The three little piggies heard the phrase "pigs in blankets" and thought they needed to dress up to eat their Christmas dinner - veggies only of course.

🎁🎁🎁ADVENT COUNTDOWN POST ELEVEN🎁🎁🎁

Whilst our small herd of Dexters live outside all year round (one reason why we choose the breed), they do need bale feeding over the winter. Daddy pig seems to have adopted the cows as his friends, I think he likes the mud, and my repair to the fence appears to have worked.

So this is what we do every five to seven days.........or whenever the cows have finished eating the last bale. Our lives have been made so much easier since Mike's purchase of the "big" tractor, which means that we can drop the hay over the fence (it's a new fence too, replaces the electric tape fence we used to have.

It's best to listen to my commentary on the video.
