    Solstice Sunrise

    for information, when we ran round the farm tonight there was cow fencing being put up in places (end of muddy lane / Williams Green) but no sign of any black and white beasties. Might be an idea to check the web cam to see where they may be next week. Could get a bit beefy in places.

    don't mess with the badgers

    there were cows out over the weekend when I ran round the farm. It depends on the time of year. Lots of sheep between October and March -ish. A lot of the fields (Other, Pennards, Dairy) are down to wheat that is currently about a foot high. It is a working farm and not a place full of field ornaments.

    NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    It usually works like this, Coaches are usually the first Thursday after pay day (first of the month) main sale on the Sunday. So that makes it 7th Oct this year. We were advised of this by the Farm when trying not to have a clash (again) between tickets and the Festival Run.

    Nozstock vs Bearded ?

    bit late for Boomtown this year. Could try Beatherder. Lots of people fecking about with mixing desks at multiple stages. You can always run away if there is a danger of anyone fecking about with a guitar.

    Short survey

    OK, your survey: why 4 parts of Wales to be in and no regionalisation of England, Scotland or anywhere else. Seems to demonstrate unconcious bias or is deliberatley designed to give a specific answer. Poor question. periodicity: I go to about 8 - 10 festvals a year. None of your periodicities match what I do. Poor question and unable to answer. I don't use any of the options for social networking, unable to answer that question. Poor question. Images - not quite sure what that question proves. None of the images seem to have any particular relevance, generalised poorly filtered shorts of Port Merrion and generalised bullshit teepee photos that could be of anywhere. Poor design of question, no indication of what the fuck you are looking for. Pictures of Port Merrion Gallery - apart from the possible breach of copyright - consistent with what? Poor question. Hard to get back to the survey once you step out using Firefox. " Would too little images available of the festival reduce your trust in paying festival prices?" too little? are we talking about size? Poor use of language and poor question. What has trust in prices got to do with anything. All in all a poorly constructed survey, fairly typical of the continual spam at this time of year. Is that what you wanted?

    It is gospel sexy Jesus. Supported by the Hail Mary's. Remember to praise when commanded.

    Site Visit 23/2/18

    Didn't see any cows, there were only sheep on Sat and Sun when we ran through and down the railway track. They have put some 4 foot drainage along the boundary directly at the east end of the railway track. there is also some 3 foot going along the side of the railway in the comman / Shagri la areas. serious size drainage. Cockmills lane is being closed for 3 weeks soon, might be cutting it into the mains like last time. Will run on the farm again this weekend, will see what else is occurring.

    NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Afternoon all we have been for a final run round the farm for this year and apart from a dog called Polly and a few startled sheep, all is very quiet. Going was a bit moist but it was good to get out in daylight before work gets in the way again next week. 2017 has been fantastic, strange, difficult, and worrying at times but now over. Looking fowards to seeing you all in the fields in 2018. if anyone finds themselves at Shindig, Beatherder, Boomtown, Shambala, Sunrise, or Tokyo World (so far but there will be more) I will buy you a beer.

    Boomtown 2018

    Yes, we normally meet at the Bad Apple bar around 1900 on the Thursday. We firm up the details nearer the time, although it is probably the usual: Beer / cider, wander, music, drunk, repeat,

    NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Been to the last couple of beatherders and am going again next year. Top weekend with a sense of humour. Quite heavy on dance and spangled kids but never any hassle and is quality through and through. Read Sean's reviews for the last couple of years to get a taste.

    Went for an evening run around the farm yesterday. All of the fields that have been looking brown (weed killer) are being ploughed. The digging in the other field is more drainage being laid parallel to the railway line. Nothing else of note happening, it is lovely and peaceful. We have our running track back again.

    Boomtown Fair 2017

    There are a few muddy patches but not much. Its ok. Can't speak for ped gates but it seems to be moving. Campervans was easier than usual. All good. Sun is out.

    Boomtown Fair 2017

    Searches are more targeted than than last few years. Dogs wandering around vans and occasional being pulled for a detailed search. They seem to be profiling and selecting. We didn't even get our usual copper wandering over for a chat to see if you look nervous.

    One month on...

    There are sheep on the farm over winter when the cows are in. I get the impression he is renting the land out to others but i don't know for sure. Never thought about it, just run past them. They all disappear by April, probably gone to lunch.....
