Julie is Apley Farm Shop’s Chief Cake Baker & does a fantastic job for us. She sent me this photo of one of her latest cakes. It looks totally delicious. Here’s the link to the recipe from allrecipes.co.uk. Being flour-free, in theory it’s gluten free, but as we use flour in other recipes in her bakery, we can’t technically call it that !

While Julie has been baking, AgWa Media have prepared a trailer of our Apley Summer film. Click HERE to catch a first glimpse. It portrays life on the Apley Estate in early Summer very well – I can’t wait to see the full film.

In the May half term, I shot this tiny film of barley in the breeze – it’s hard to believe it’ll be ready for harvest in only 8 weeks’ time ! Click HERE for a micro de-stressing experience !

Adrian, our Farm Manager, has in the meantime being bringing silage bales in from the fields with our team of 3 farm workers, spraying the thistles & nettles in the grassland with a herbicide, & replacing broken gates & gate posts around the farm.
