There’s something lovely about the sound of the straw, the curiosity of cows, and the worn wooden handle of a pitchfork*.
When we started filming at the farm back in 2018, I was surprised to enjoy one of the simplest jobs imaginable.
Littering the cows.
Mum always laughed that it’s good I enjoyed it, because it’s unrelenting on our farm during the Winter. When the land is given a rest, and the cows are housed in the barns; you have to make their bed… because they tend to ruin it on a daily basis.
So that’s what this weeks Calming Farming video is about. Making the bed.
We also filmed a new episode of our monthly podcast (coming soon), and there should be a few more videos coming out over the next few weeks – Josh and I captured a lot when we went to visit earlier in the week.
*Not applicable to new pitchforks, one that’s lasted at least 1 generation.
I hope you’re having a lovely Sunday and if you’re feeling inspired – please share this moment with others.
If you have anything to add, then we’d love to hear from you in the comments!
Lots of love from Ru + the farm.
