I am Peter, I farm Springfields farm and run Rocombe valley retreat.
Nestling down here in Devon the Rocombe Valley is looking amazing this April the sun is shining some days without a cloud in the sky ,and its suprisingly warm for April as we are down under the wind.
Spring is here at last after a cold and frosty winter and the wild flowers are out all over the farm , with some spectacular displays of daisys in some fields and primroses all around the hedgerows.Also, the hedges are white in many places with the hawthorn, blackthorn and cherry trees in full blossom.
The wild ducks and geese are now nesting around the lakes and on the island .
On the farm, the South Devon cows have started calving with 2 heifers and 1 bull calf so far. The barley has been sown and has just started to grow.
At the moment most time is being spent preparing the area for the bell tents for this coming season
