SORRY WE HAVE NOW SOLD all of our Muscovy ducks and all available turkeys, chicken and guinea fowl from Hinton Harvest.
School Farm Beef
The Christmas beef animal will be arriving back from the butcher on Friday 21st December in the afternoon. As usual, this one was homebred and has been extensively grazed on our fields on Eastmoor, Muchelney. The meat has been hung for three and a half weeks.
In 2015 /2016 we replaced a cider apple orchard destroyed by cattle in the 1950’s. We decided to use standard trees rather than commercial bush trees. They take longer to mature and grow to an eventual enormous height but make very good housing for the local birds and bugs! Local varieties of cider apple trees were planted such as Kingston Black, Brown’s and Dabinett.
