Down on the Farm

Chickens, pigs and mower repairs

Staff and management distraught! Today Austin, ladies man and all round avian dandy (see photo) was found deceased in the chicken run. Proprietor apoplectic. Big Boy is prime suspect, but keeping tight beaked at this stage. Mystery deepens. Management considering calling on old detective chums - Warren Clarke - ("Dalziel and Pascoe") is first thought. Staff prefer Helen Mirren. Fair enough.

On a brighter note, Redbank welcomes Peggy and Polly, two kuni kuni pigs. Like most pigs these two have very agreeable dispositions. Apart from a propensity for rooting.

Landscaping progresses well around the new tasting room and T.P.H.Q. Megan Wraight, landscape architect to the stars, is at the helm. Leon Kiel, stonemason to the stars, is making some beautiful stone walls. Arne Gawn, landscaper to the stars, is planting, sowing etc. Meanwhile the proprietor is back on the mower. Richard Flatman is on mower repairs. Frequently.
