Upholstery is an addictive hobby, beware!

Upholstery can become incredibly addictive in a very short space of time and I warned my first students of this fact when they arrived clutching their old chairs and stools. A class of 3 students, all eager to learn and go home with a reupholstered piece of furniture creates a fantastic atmosphere; one of anticipation and…

You may leave Huntlands Farm Bnb with more than you bargained for..!

My last guests left with the husband realising that their weekend away could potentially be expensive for him as his wife turned to me as she left and said, “Thank you Lucy for inspiring me to go home and redecorate my whole house”!

I think every farm ought to have a cat, and as I’ve not had one since I was a child there seemed even more reason to get one.  Having found out that a lady in the village had a litter of four kittens, all of which were beautiful and two needed homes, we decided to get two.  It didn’t seem fair to separate them and two’s…

The most memorable story recently was when Dad came out of hospital having had a total knee operation and I was frantically wondering what to do with a ewe who was obviously in trouble lambing.  In the end, Dad supervised on crutches, I held the ewe and one of our guests drew the lamb under the watchful eye of all his…

The last two months have been extremely busy and we’ve managed to finish decorating the downstairs Georgian front; we…

2011 round up

What a month December has been.  There is something in the human brain that makes us believe we need to get EVERYTHING finished before 31st December or is it just me?!?  My lack of news items is mainly due to my lack of knowledge when transferring photos from my mobile phone to my laptop as well as the fact that I have…

Cutting and bunching up mistletoe for my regular customers and then eating mince pies at the Bringsty Forge Open Day has well and truly put me in the Christmas spirit. On Saturday 26th November 2011 Bringsty Forge held their third public open day in which they invited the general public to view their hand crafted artefacts…

Herefordshire cider

For the past couple of weeks we have experienced the aroma of apple juice every time we venture outside.  This is because the cider apples have been harvested and collected in the yard ready for transportation to the cider making plant. With over 9,500 acres of cider orchards in Herefordshire, the county produces well over…
