The land is part of the three acres that Bridget Hicky- Williams runs near Diss in Norfolk. We now work together, sharing the load of looking after sheep, lambs when in season, a goat and she has one kid. As well as Piggles our Kune Kune Pig who believes she is a Dog as she follows you around everywhere,we also have Babe a male pig who is just like his name sake. There are ducks and chickens lots of babies one of the indoor cats has just had 4 and another cat 2 kittens, there are also 6 Collie puppies , its like a nursery. There are two Shetland ponies and four wild-ish cats. Last but not least we have Amma our sheep dog who the lambs 'round' up because she is such a wuss.

We have a large Organic Vegetable garden which we never seem to keep on top of, numerous building projects inside and out all year round. Most of our food and milk comes from the farm including delicious home made bread.
We work with the seasons regarding preserving fruit and veg, hoping to take us through the year.

We have a core of seven people including Bridget and I who are here permanently, some working outside the community which gives us a great variety in our day to day activities.

There is always a friendly and warm atmosphere here along with nice cups of tea and if your lucky brilliant homemade cakes.
