Fine Feast For Everyone.

 Our annual pre-season beaters’ barbecue last weekend was, as ever, very popular with a full complement of beaters and pickers up joining us to see in the new season. A healthy mix of the old faithfuls together with several new faces served to make the event a very cheerful one despite the frequent downpours.

Given the increased numbers in the team this year we had an even bigger pig to spit-roast. The spit started turning at midnight with Andrew, Charles and Toby all taking turns to stoke the fires throughout the night!

We were delighted to see Dave’s efforts in the gardens paying off at the weekend when Mornacott was judged first in 11 out of the 34 categories in the Molland and District annual show.

We were particularly pleased to win best onions, tomatoes, carrots, and rhubarb all of which will soon be harvested to be enjoyed by our guests over the coming months.

Our Blackberry Gin, chutney and eggs also achieved acclaim combing to win the “craft” section of the show.

Bird Flu (Avian Influenza)

Several teams of guns on the shoot have expressed concern with the continued reports of the likelihood of a recurrence of bird flu.

Several teams of guns on the shoot have expressed concern with the continued reports of the likelihood of a recurrence of bird flu and the thought has never been far from our minds as well. Whilst our bio-security measures follow all the latest DEFRA guidance the concern is that local chicken flocks, even small domestic ones, may catch bird flu which could result in shooting being cancelled by order of DEFRA in nearby shoots.

That’s why we were delighted when, Yorkshire based, Shoot Protect started to offer insurance cover for teams of guns at very reasonable rates. Shoot Protect can be contacted through.

Super Sales at Sedgemoor

Our first sale of bullocks at the Sedgemoor Auction Centre this month, saw some tremendous results for our Mornacott herd.

Our first sale of bullocks at the Sedgemoor Auction Centre this month, saw some tremendous results for our Mornacott herd.  Two of our stores made a very respectable £1205 and in the stirks category, described as a smart consignment from Mornacott, we made second price.  With cattle being drawn from all over the South of England and Wales, the fruits of our team’s breeding and nutrition programme is certainly starting to reap encouraging rewards.

The road to Mornacott ......

 Just a little over one year ago we had a rant in this section about the potholes that were causing havoc along the lane to Mornacott.

Just a little over one year ago we had a rant in this section about the potholes that were causing havoc along the lane to Mornacott.  Finally, after years of patch repairs, we are delighted to say that the journey to and from Mornacott and the North Devon Link Road will now be a smooth one as the Council has blessed us with funding and is now undertaking proper resurfacing!  We're pretty sure that this will be greatly appreciated by all of our Mornacott guests.
