The team from Premier Polytunnels were up this week to erect our two 30 x 60ft tunnels. We are delighted with them. Next challenge will be building raised beds and sorting out irrigation.

Following completion of the barn and connection of the services, the next stage is delivery of our mobile homes. In order to establish and operate Foragers effectively it's imperative that we live on site, so the McAlpine family is all set to downsize and move to Wester Balfunning Farm very soon. A great opportunity to get rid of all the accumulated and often unnecessary junk we have gathered over the years. A few trips to charity shops and recycling centres will be required I think.
