We said good-bye to most of the geese, bar the 6 we are keeping, today and yesterday. They are being professionally ‘dealt’ with by the Game Cart in Fife, one of the few places that will deal with small poultry producers like us. Saying farewell to animals that aren’t pets but livestock is a feeling and a conundrum most farmers face and one we now share; I cannot appropriately describe.
Yes it is part of the cycle of life and farming and what better way than to be enjoyed as part of a Christmas feast! And yet we will miss them. That part of our daily life is now over until next Spring when it starts again. Hello, good bye, hello, good bye, hello, good bye. The story of life.
