It's time to remove the Winter Woollies!

Our Mornacott flock of sheep have been gathered in for their annual shear. Each sheep is hand shorn and their woolly fleeces removed so they are ready for the Summer heat wave. Our early lambs which where born in February are looking fantastic and the first lot will be heading to market later this week. With the heat wave set to continue our sheep are looking for shade and praying for rain to keep the grass growing.

Cottage success.

 After a busy few weeks with holiday cottage bookings, we managed to fit in our annual cottage rating inspection.

We are pleased to announce that we maintained our 5 star rating on Orchard and Old Stables cottages, and 4 Star Gold on Barn cottage. We now look forward to the busy summer season, and hoping that this beautiful Devon sunshine continues.

New arrivals enjoy the sunshine.

At last the sun shines at Mornacott. After one of our wettest winters on record we are finally getting the weather one would expect for this time of the year.  Our animal numbers have swelled considerably over the last two months with the safe arrival of over 80 calves, 200 lambs, some Landrace piglets and a brood of Maran chicks. All of the animals, especially the piglets, are looking forward to meeting our holiday guests this summer.

Spring has arrived at Mornacott

  

  The sun is shining, the lambs are bleating, spring is in the air here at Mornacott. We have been busily spring cleaning our cottages, ready to welcome old and new friends alike. Not only have we seen this year’s crop of new lambs, we are delighted to welcome a new member to our team with Grant and Megan’s new baby daughter, Olivia, being born on 4th February. Let’s hope the rest of the year continues as well as it has started!

All over again for another season!

This morning's sunrise marked the last shoot day at Mornacott for another season. At last its time for the beating and picking up teams to test their skills against our birds. The sun shone all day and whilst it wasn't the best weather for shooting a fantastic day was had by all. Our traditional roast turkey dinner was followed by a very successful duck flight. A huge thank you to all of the beating and picking up team for all their efforts this season, we look forward to seeing you all in the Autumn.

Christmas has arrived at Mornacott.

Today saw the annual plucking of our Mornacott Christmas turkeys. This year our bronze turkeys have been lovingly reared along side our Ruby Red Devon Cattle. Over the summer the turkeys and cattle have shared many happy hours enjoying the Devon sunshine so we hope this will be reflected in their flavour.

The team here at Mornacott all take part in the plucking of the turkeys and take one home each for christmas lunch.

We wish you all a Merry Christmas and hope your turkeys are as tasty as ours.
