Summer’s Evening

Just an excuse to post a picture from the farm, a beautiful hazy August evening. The quality of light this time of year is gorgeous, so expect a few more photos over the next couple of months! Keep walking into this view and you can see out over Mevagissey, across the sea to Fowey, a stunningly beautiful place indeed.

Here’s an interesting blog post from WordPress Freshly Pressed. Strikes a chord with me and I expect many of you out there…

Cold Snaps

Christmas Eve was the most beautiful of days, cold crisp and clear blue sky. I took a walk through Temple Wood on Kestle Farm’s land. With the entrance to this walk just through a gate on the lower side of Heligan’s field car park it’s very accessible. The mud was frozen solid on this particular day but on days that aren’t quite so impossibly freezing, it can be very muddy so wear your wellies!

You can find a map for this walk here

Starry Starry Night

A photo from Late Night Shopping at Lobbs Farm Shop. Clearly no shopping going on here, but it was the most beautiful night, still, cold and clear. I’ll upload more photos from the evening soon. Hope you’re all keeping warm out there.
