April has been a busy month for us on the farm, but in a slightly different way to usual. One exciting step forward has been finishing planting our latest olive grove, a 5-acre planting of various varieties in partnership with our friends at Belazu.
Change is quite often a very good thing, and on the farm, the change in seasons make for an exciting time. Spring is always seen as the season of change, with lots of new things bursting with life; this year it feels even more apt.
Writing at the autumn equinox, as the nights become longer than the days, seems appropriate timing as we also move into a new stage of covid related restrictions. There is a definite ‘end of term’ feel at the farm at this time of year.
