Farmer Ken has been busy making the "silage". Silage is a good quality and nutritious food perfect for our cows and sheep which you can see on our children's farm, to eat through the winter...yum,yum! Even our pony trekking horses love it.
Do you know how silage is made?.....It is a form of conserved grass made by farmers during the summer months when the grass is green, plentiful and not required for grazing.
First Farmer Ken mowed the long grass and fluffed it up to let sun dry the lush grass a little. Next Farmer Ken on his tractor just like the one you ride on our tractor and trailer rides, made nice neat little rows with the grass ready for the Big Baler to gobble up the grass and squish the grass into big round bales and then cover in plastic to keep for the winter.
