Infinity Yoga Deck in the Making



It’s been a joy building the new yoga location that will be first used for the mid summer event that Jo and Jana are creating.

Working without electricity with just a hand saw, cordless drill and a few other simple tools has been lovely. It’s such a tranquil spot and the long daylight hours have had me knocking off at 9:00 pm. Some locally grown Larch will be milled next week and then the top will go on this beautifully located yoga deck.

I hoping that this site on the brow of the hill will give the yogi in reflective pose more of an infinity perspective. It will be a wonderful place to practice.

If you haven’t already booked your place on the next event now’s the time!

Gone Diggin’








Quite a haul from this morning’s dig. Original granite quoins from the house chiseled out by hand many centuries ago. They lay buried and covered in brambles. It’s hard to imagine the toil involved in building with them. Hopefully they’ll find their way into a future project that does them justice. Not for the potting shed and a brew house that will take their place…

1st Annual Egg Roll Gathering

Nye with his golden bunny trophy

Today was such a fun day. It looks like this could become an annual event. Today’s winners were Nye for the kids and Pete Gadd for the grown ups.

Despite some doubtful pitching by the adult contestants there were no umpire calls. The Cornish mizzle abated and although the going was soft some very respectable distances were achieved.

It could have been the sheer volume of chocolate consumed on the egg hunt that enabled Nye’s spectacular finish but a stewards appeal was over ruled as cocoa is exempt from the banned substance list. His winning roll stands and he scooped the Golden Bunny Trophy.








Pete has vowed to defend his 2015 Adult title next year and in a triumphant moment he tossed the winning egg to the admiring pack of hungry dogs. Victory seemed sweet for Mr Gadd. Meanwhile contestants tucked into delicious cakes and buns prepared with love and enjoyed by all.

BaHo BoHo … Last Go!



It’s the 31st of July and tomorrow the 1st August will be the last day to buy tickets for our Bank Holiday Bohemia featuring the amazing Juliet Russell and Sarah Moody. Juliet and Sarah will be leading the musical journey of the Gypsies. Juliet’s work and voice is one that many of our friends will have seen and heard through our fund raising events. For those of you who haven’t experienced the power listen here! 

Apart from the fireside music and the workshops Juliet and Sarah have planned there will other activities on offer to suit children and adults from flag making to creating art from found objects. Harewood is the perfect place to find peace and tranquility, a hammock or a canoe to paddle.

Day tickets will be very limited and may not be available at all so if you’re coming this really is your last chance.

Bank Holiday Boho and a website facelift

Mrs Broodie









Well I guess the latest news is that we just announced our first bijou summer festival and I have stayed up late updating the Harewood farm site to give it fresh new look.

The other developments of the day are that the new chicks are growing strong and Mrs Broodie the hen can come out of her nesting box and to enjoy the sunshine. Jo has been making elderflower cordial which smells delish and Laika the puppy disgraced herself by licking the bread rising in the tin before it got to the oven.

More soon! 🙂

Dennis is the man…

Dennis the man!
Dennis the man!

As the days start to draw out and the morning light streams in a little earlier each day Dennis our Light Sussex Cockrell seems to greet the day with a little more gusto. His seven lovely girls are his and our pride and joy. It seems such a lovely arrangement, we provide them with comfortable accommodation and excellent food and they lay us gorgeous eggs each day. Often there’s 7 ultra fresh eggs for us by noon. After their morning’s work of preening and laying we let them out to wander free. Dennis takes them walking around the yard, in the grass and down the lane. As the day comes to a close and the sun begins to dip, wherever they’ve been they make their way home. With a few squarkes and clucks the girls jostle for a position in the hen house for the night. When everyone is in we shut the door lest Mr Fox should make an unwelcome visit and then all is quite… till tomorrow’s dawning.
