Many of our yurt guests will have spotted that the 100 acre field adjacent to our yurt camp is farmed by the local Christmas tree farm at Marldon. Guests can see on the horizon above our land the large quantities of trees growing over the hill and down the next valley. The past month has seen a hive of activity with hundreds possibly thousands of Nordmann fir trees being harvested for the local markets and the Christmas shop at Farthing Lane. The wet weather has meant that the lanes have been liberally sprayed with mud from the constant traffic in the lanes surrounding Hemsford from the Christmas tree field at Reeve acre. Our horses have been very excited at watching all the men working in the next field and have been cavorting about for their audience! We have now bought our own tree - a lovely 7 footer which is smelling divine and keeping my cats busy!
