Feeding the Farm Birds

Posted: 13th December 2018

Last job of the day as the darkness approaches all too quickly. The third year of a two farm experiment on the effects of supplementary winter feeding of farmland birds. In addition to feeders in the trees, seed at the rate of 10kg a day is scattered in the bird food plot which at the moment is still being visited by birds feeding from seed on the plants. This source will be exhausted within weeks when the scattered seed should provide welcome support to the Honeydale feathered visitors and residents, hopefully taking them into the breeding season in tip top condition.

About Us

It's always been part of our vision to have a farm as an extension of the Cotswold Seeds business and in 2013 we bought Honeydale Farm, one hundred acres in the Cotswolds. During the past couple of years we've been making huge progress on the farm and this blog was set up to share this progress with our friends in the farming world.
