Some Sunday morning racing gave us a giggle this morning!

Spring At The Farm Posted March 17, 2018

Lambing

We are well underway with the lambing season, around 40% of the ewes have given birth already.

The weather is working against us, as cold winds and the threat of snow prevent us from putting even the strongest of lambs out to the field.

Nevertheless, we are positive and eating lots of cake to refuel after hard days in the barn, a right that is denied most of the year in the Davis household!

Better Weather

Despite the adverse spring weather, one of our guests did manage to catch a shot of a beautiful HFF sunset on Tuesday, pictured below:

We can’t wait for the warmer weather, and on occasion have already seen the odd BBQ breakfast being cooked on the park!
Kudos to those brave, thick-skinned chefs!

All the best,

Autumn Update Posted November 5, 2017

Seasonal Photos

We have been blessed with the views that autumn has brought to Harbury Fields this month. Our visitors have been sending us their wonderful photos taken during farm walks and from their vans. We have shared some of our favourites below:

The Livestock

The farm seems to come to life during November, as the autumnal colours are at their most vibrant and we begin providing the livestock with additional food.

This week our horses have come into the barn to be stabled each night, and they will stay in overnight until early April 2018. The sheep are also being given extra energy to support them and maintain their condition over the winter months. Our young sheepdog Finn is continuing his training over the winter, and we hope that by late next year he will be a highly capable at helping Rob gather the flock!

Christmas Shopping

While the park usually becomes quieter during November, it is noteworthy that Leamington Spa offers an excellent Christmas shopping opportunity. Major high street brands, unique cafes and wonderful lights make the Christmas shop most pleasurable, and the recent addition of TK Maxx at the Shires Retail Park has also increased the likelihood of grabbing a bargain! For more information on shopping in Leamington, you can click here.

All the best,

Pizza Night Success! Posted October 21, 2017

Off

On Friday 20th October, Harbury Fields were joined by the wonderful ‘Taste’ pizza caterers for the evening, who provided delicious wood-fired pizzas and flatbreads for our customers.

 

 

 

The Taste usually caters for wedding receptions, so we were totally chuffed when they agreed to come to Harbury and grace us with their pizzas!
There was an excellent turnout and the night provided a great opportunity for our visitors to mingle.

 

 

 

 

 

We are continually looking for ways to improve our services and will be investigating future catering opportunities that allow our customers to have evenings where they don’t have to cook or drive during their stay.

All the best,

The Davis Family

This week we have thoroughly enjoyed welcoming the beautiful Bella to Harbury Fields Farm.
She is a 16″3 Bay Mare and is absolutely bursting with character. She is currently in the paddock beside the caravan park, so when you stay with us, be sure to say Hello!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In addition, Harbury Beer Festival takes place on Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd of September, so if you enjoy sampling local beers and perries,
this event is a must!

All the best,

The Davis Family

A Long Day Shearing Posted June 21, 2017

Off

With temperatures fluctuating between 19-27 degrees today, the shearers have had a hard day on their hands!

The farmer (Rob Davis) used his puppy sheep-dog-in-training to herd the sheep at 06.30AM, ensuring that temperatures were still low enough for the animals to be moved.

The sheep were gradually manoeuvred through a metal race towards the shearing equipment, where a trap door was operated to co-ordinate a 1-in 1-out system.

Each wool fleece is rolled and sold by the farmer in its raw state, and hopefully in one whole piece!

The sheep were clearly fond of their new hairdos, stopping to pose for the camera once released back in to the field.

All the best,

The Davis Family

Things Are Heating Up! Posted June 16, 2017

After a windy few days in Warwickshire, we are finally due some beautiful weather!
It is so nice to see our visitors with their BBQs out and sat enjoying the sunshine ☀️.
In a weeks time, our shearers will be coming to shear the HFF sheep so that they can enjoy the weather too.

On the note of good weather, we are presently discussing whether to stock an ice cream freezer in our reception area, and would love to hear your opinions on whether this would be popular or not. Please feel free to comment below and leave some feedback!
