Sheepdrove Snow Day

A snowy morning at Sheepdrove. In fact we’ve had not one but two snow days at Sheepdrove so far this winter…

A blanket of snow transforms Sheepdrove into a magical landscape but thankfully both our November and January snow days were mercifully brief as any significant snowfall tends to make life on the farm that little bit trickier. Heavy snow can make it hard for both wild and farm animals to find food. There are always many more birds at our wild bird feeding stations and garden bird feeders during snow days, frosty mornings and cold snaps.

It reaches to the fence,
It wraps it, rail by rail,
Till it is lost in fleeces;
It flings a crystal veil
