The Private Garden at Fullers Hill

The Butterfly Garden. This is the private garden for the Tack Room apartment, and is so called because of the profusion of butterflies that enjoy a particular plant which has rather taken over here! Verbena bonariensis grows tall and wiry, and is topped with abundant clusters of mauve flowers which are hugely attractive to butterflies and bees alike. It has long been one of my favourite plants, and fits well into almost any scheme, with a lengthy flowering period which carries on well into November if the weather is fairly mild. The flowers themselves have a luminescence which is very apparent on duller days, when their colour seems to become […]

Fullers Hill Cottages has geese on its pond

Fullers Hill geese The geese aka 9th, Battalion hatched into this world on 24th, July in North Norfolk.  They then started their 2 hour journey home to Fullers Hill Cottages, on the front seat of the car chirping away to their new surrogate mum, who was chatting back to them.  If they got slightly cold, they were gently placed within the bosom of surrogate mummy to warm up.  Not sure if that is a driving offense or not! Once safely home at Fullers Hill, the luxury surrounding under the heat lamp, sharing the chicken coup, they found very cosy.  After three weeks of nurturing and all creature comforts, it was time for […]

Wheat Harvest at Fullers Hill Cottages

Where did the wheat go? The Cambridge Holiday Cottages in the heart of the working farm at Fuller’s Hill Farm. The farm covers some 450ha of beautiful rolling countryside in SW Cambridgshire. The wheat harvest of 2012 will sadly go down in farming folk law as one of the worst in living memory.  The crop was one of the poorest yielding and worst quality that any living farmer can remember. At Fullers Hill Farm we did not produce a single ton of wheat that meet the basic quality standards for any use, not even for chicken feed. The most dis-appointing part of this was that in early June the wheat […]

The Old Plough

Outside the Old Dairy apartment. The history of this single furrow horse drawn plough is not known, however it’s been on the farm as long as I can recall. The primary purpose of ploughing is to turn over the upper layer of the soil, bringing fresh nutrients to the surface, while burying weeds, the remains of previous crops, and both crop and weed seeds, allowing them to break down. It also aerates the soil, allows it to hold moisture better and provides a seed-free medium for planting an alternate crop. In modern use, a ploughed field is typically left to dry out, and is then harrowed before planting. Modern competitions […]
