The green and rolling countryside of Worcestershire, England, is home to the cider apple orchards which surround the gardens of Pear Tree Cottage. They enjoy a sunny south westerly aspect with sweeping views across to Martley Hillside, Woodbury and Abberley clock tower. The Teme Valley lies just over the hill and, not far away, is the Herefordshire border. Although our climate is temperate, our seasons are often uncertain and always a challenge to a gardener! This began in 2010 & follows the weekly ups and downs of garden work chronicling both successes and failures but, above all, demonstrates the fun enjoyed by three people who regularly garden in all weathers

Poultry Progress at Pear Tree Cottage

As I type, 4 new 18 week old hens are sleeping in the new house for hens!  We have a Blacktail, a Bluebelle, a Rhode Rock and an Amber.  All 4 are hybrids and came from Sarah at Newland Grange near Malvern
 ( ) which is an amazing place! Honestly!  It really is!  Even the website is well worth a look.  She has thought of absolutely every aspect of keeping and breeding poultry and even offers hen boarding!  She has rows of Eggloos just for the purpose.

We hope to have photos in the next Poultry Progress Post!!
