Through July and August, Miranda and William Kendall have generously allowed the Trust's small herd of British White cattle to graze on organic pasture at Maple Farm. This break was planned to allow summer flowers and grasses to bloom and seed on Simpson's Fromus Reserve. The summer growth now needs to be grazed, to go into winter at the optimal height of 5-15 cm. On Wednesday 4th September (2019) , Philip Baskett will bring back to Fromus our bull, four cows and a heifer calf. For the first weeks, they will be in the eastern pastures, but will move to the far end of the reserve for the blackberry open morning at Fromus, on 28th September (2019).
