Wow – more and more seems to be happening on Rhug Estate.
The month started with a staff lunchtime bluebell walk in the big woodland area behind the Rûg Hall, this was two weeks later than normal due to the colder spring we had. However, as always it was a mind blowing carpet display of bluebells in the woodlands around Rhug with a sensational scent.
It’s the time of year when many children are having time out of the classroom, with school trips taking place. We had the pleasure of welcoming Ysgol y Gwernant, Llangollen, here on a visit which incorporated a cooking lesson, a farm walk, a tractor tour and of course a little time in our play park. Gareth our farm manager, Alun our butcher and Gwen coordinated the day’s events. We love to welcome school children here to Rhug Estate and tell them as much as we can about the benefits of organic farming and about the animals we rear here. It is very rewarding for us and we hope the children enjoy seeing life on an organic farm and learning about the whole farming picture from field to plate.
