Abbey Medieval Festival 2011 Part 2

Doesn't she just look stunning

The children were little sweethearts

Come late afternoon I felt I could have curled
up here for a nap.

"VERY" Medieval Blacksmithing

The authentic camp.

Abbey Medieval Festival 2011 Part 1

Just like last year, another great day out.

Lot's to do and see!

The Janissary Barracks had Turkish cooking demonstrations
Turkish coffee history & culture with coffee reading.

My favourite's, The Shuvani Romani Kumpania had
Romani herbal remedies & putsi making as well as their Gypsy Cob horse on show.

Heaps of other things to see & do

there is no way you would be able to see everything on offer.

Some other things we enjoyed were-Blacksmithing, Medieval Cooking, Leather craft,
making drinking & blowing horns, making Meade, How to make chain maile
& so the list continues.

Hope your having a lovely week-end

Meat Chickens

The meat chickens were 3wks old on Tuesday.
(Gee do they grow!)

We have been doing meat chickens every year now for the past 8yrs. We prefer to grow ours out a bit slower than their commercial relatives. Usually to about 14-16wks, by this time most are 2.5 -3.5kg.

They may grow slower but they live a happy life free ranging & eating natural foods instead of mass produced garbage. This morning they devoured a large bowl of rolled oats & bran mixed with a generous pour of warm milk.
(Yummy straight from the cow milk that is, the stuff you can't buy & with all that lovely cream on top)

I could of eat it fact I did have porridge for breakfast.

Does anyone else raise their own chicken or other meats??

Caroline xoxo....
