Almost everything is a first at Pookchurch, and a hundred or so Easycare sheep is another such example. ( Yes Easycare because they are apparently just that - easy to look after!). They have been with us since November, and done a great job of reducing the grass and weeds to a billiard table surface. It’s been good to see extra life in the vineyard, and they’ve added some welcome fertiliser too! But as February approaches it’s time for them to move on, and for lambing too.
