Things to do on your smallholding this month!

There are lots of useful seasonal tips on our website. Here are a few:

  • Continue creep-feeding lambs but don't give them feed formulated for ewes.
  • If your chickens don't have access to grass, give them plenty of greens such as lettuce and cabbage.
  • As it gets warmer, make sure your pigs have access to shade at all times.
  • Water your vegetable garden late in the evening so that the water is not evaporated by the hot sunshine.

Keep up with all your smallholding tasks with our comprehensive guides to sheep, chickens, pigs and the vegetable garden. Just click on an image below.
