On the plus side I managed to capture a video of a very new calf trying to stand for the first time. This is a precious sight that never gets old! ...

WE ARE VERY VERY SORRY! The ice cream vending machine has not been as simple to set up as we had hoped and is not ready. We had hoped to have a freezer out and to still sell our ice cream in tubs. UNFORTUNATELY WE HAVE BEEN HIT BY A TUMMY BUG and we WONT be able to sell tomorrow. We are hoping to be in action for Sunday. We know that lots of you are desperate to buy some ice cream and we thank you for your enthusiasm. We don’t want to pass on any illness to you all.
The milk vending machine is back up and running though.
Thank you so much for your patience and we are so sorry to let you down!

What a year weather wise…. This is the only group of cows we have outside, some beef, some mums to be, they have grass to pick over and barley straw to eat, lots of shade and access to the river.
The milking herd go out for a few hours in the morning to pick fields over then come in for‘winter’ food, luckily milk quality is still good with 5%fat and 3.5% protein

Is this year as bad as ‘76? I was in the planning stage so don’t remember!

I'd say it's very similar. It had been a dry winter then was hot and sunny for weeks with no rain, the grass was brown and the farmers had harvest done early. I remember the water shortage, hosepipe bans, and standpipes in the streets where we had to collect our water in buckets. Hopefully we don't have to do that this year! And the ladybirds 🐞🐞 thousands of them, everywhere. That was when I discovered they can bite! It broke with massive thunderstorms ⚡️at the end of August.

Titsey Estate keeps running out of water and have to get tankers in to top up the reservoir. It seems the cows are drinking it faster than they can pump it from the well.

Don’t think that we have had the prolonged heat, but definitely been dryer than then

I’m sure we will make it rain again offering ice cream🤞 someone say ice cream….. don’t mind if we do 👍🏻 #jerseys #jerseyicecream #parkfarmbrasted

We will be selling our delicious Jersey Ice Cream today from our pop up shop by the vending machine, so drop by, grab some milk and a cone of ice cream. Ice cream will be available between 9.30 and 3.
We are nearly there with being able to sell it in tubs. We hope to be up and running properly by the end of next week. 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻

Wow- just popped in for some gorgeous raw (or you could opt for pasteurised) fresh milk-so easy to use vending machine, containers are there ready & waiting together with some Kent honey & - not to miss- cookie mix bottles! Great to get the kids to make! Of course we had to have a totally delicious ice cream whilst we were there- what a treat! Really do ‘pop in if you’re passing’- very well worth it! 😊 😊

So excited love your icecream 😍

Can’t wait for the tubs

Send me some?

Yay….🌻 if you are going on the beloved M25 our sunflowers are out, hopefully brighten your day 🌻 we have planted a few acres this year but these are the only ones that have germinated, we hope to do this every year as we planted the hedge along the motorway and left a six metre strip farm side before the fencing as a wildlife channel 🌻🐝🦋 ...

We are cracking on making use of this prolonged dry spell…. A snapshot of yesterday, we started combining the barley (grain will be sold and keeping the straw for feeding) when we can we are emptying our lagoon to encourage grass growth.
We are allowing cows to come into the buildings for shade and food, they seem to be quite happy 😎 stay cool if you can 😎☀️
