What an active few years we have had . For picture gallery look here

The Herb garden has been carefully looked after this year with one of the beds cleared completely to make way for copious amounts of Mint and Parsley for the kitchen to use. 

Amber Services have continued to be on site with their many Learning Disability clients who are clearly loving what they are doing. 

Dale Dudley and all the lads from Arden House (see picture above) have now finished making a Cob Oven - which in Adobe style white looks like it has just descended from outer space. Pizza is on the cards as it generates a huge amount of heat whilst being made essentially from Straw and Mud (forgive me Dale if this is innacurate!). 

Meanwhile the vineyard in its fifth year, under the watchful eye of Nick Stokes - and with help from Martin Vickers at Halfpenny Green Vineyard - is due to produe its third proper crop in 2018. In 2016 we picked 410 kilos and in 2017 525 kilos which should equate to nearly 500 bottles of Rose Pinot Noir. We decided in the end to call it "GUSTO".
