Hendra Farm Blog and latest news
OMG!! That must have been the longest, darkest and wettest Winter ever!! It has been such hard work too. Anyhow, we have all survived, intact, and there is lots to look forward to now that Spring is on its way.
Farmer's Markets - We are now selling our increasingly popular alpaca and rhea meat at Lostwithiel market which is every other Friday, and the market at Bodmin Nursery, which is the 3rd Saturday of each month. Bodmin Nursery have their two day Spring festival on the 20th & 21st April and are running their farmer's market alongside - we will be there!!
Hens - After our winter break we are now stocking a full range of our Trelawny hybrid point of lay pullets. These are top of the range birds, fully vaccinated, and ideal for keeping free range or equally at home as garden pets.
Open Farm Sunday - we will be holding an open farm day as part of this national event. Sunday 9th June is the date for your diary!! More details to follow.
We now have 'Rheally Tasty' Rhea sausages available in three delicious flavours! These are in addition to our 'Pacabangers' Alpaca sausages, 'Tibbylicious' Lamb and Mint sausages and 'Well Tickled' pork sausages! See The Larder for more details.
We got married!!

16th May - A visit from the foundation class of Looe Primary School. Great fun was had by all!!
5th May - The film crew for The Hungry Sailors, with Dick and James Strawbridge, have been here all afternoon filming us for inclusion in their next series. Great fun all round - what super guys. Dick achieved a life time's ambition of riding a Shire horse - good old Beauty happily obliged on that one. A Rhea's egg was scrambled, Bonnie the alpaca had a pedicure, Mowzer the cat took a starring role, the lambs played their part brilliantly, and even the rabbits had lead roles! Look out for us in the new series which will be screened next January.
New arrivals! Bing, Bong, Boing and Bounce!
Due to the sad loss of one of our wallabies, which left just one on his own, we have now acquired some more!
