Making hay while the sun shines!

15 EuCAN volunteers helped with the hay harvest on the Terrace fields on the edge of Sherborne, brushcutting the crop, turning the cut grass, turning again and rowing it up prior to the baling. Roy Attfield from Green Valley Yurts in Godmanstone brought a small baler which was ideal for the size of the fields. We ended up with 77 bales of good hay which will feed our Dartmoor ponies during the winter.

and the sun continued to shine for us to load up the bales and remove them from the site!
