Important Notice

I came home today to a pile of veg. peelings chucked over the field gate.

Whoever did this does not understand the possible consequences. Please do not do this to stock, however well-meaning your intentions.

Animals in the food chain cannot have waste food from unidentifiable sources; from kitchens, it is illegal. If they had eaten the peelings, they would have been exempt from the food chain. Their lives would be lost. I could be prosecuted.

Windfall apples and pears are a delicious treat and welcomed.

Also – animals, like people, are unpredictable, they may bite..respect them, always.
