With COVID restrictions easing around the world and international travel back on the agenda, we’re looking forward to sharing Chestnut Farm with a new group of travellers in the coming seasons.
The gardens and orchards have run a little wild without the input of a regular stream of helpers, so we’re looking forward to getting everything back on track. The farmers markets (twice a month) grew like crazy during COVID so are now bigger and better than ever – although they also take up more time!
Confession – in the first four months of lockdown in 2020 I thoroughly enjoyed myself building new timber racks and storage sheds while listening to audiobooks and podcasts all day… water tanks were full, firewood stacked high and the dry goods store was well stocked. I hardly needed to leave home. 🙂 Sure, I missed seeing people, but the introverted side of my personality had a ball.
