Practical Matters of Consequence

Wednesday 27th of April and everyone at Lower Shaw Farm is busy. Andrea and Matt are getting ready for a music weekend as well as the Literature Festival that starts on May morning Monday at 5:30am. And there is a farm to run too...

"A couple of hours ago, the blackest sheep of our family, Lou, gave birth to an even blacker lamb. Cute beyond belief. What with the newly-hatched ducklings, and new white rabbits, it's not easy to get on with practical matters of consequence...sprinting but bleating" Matt.
