Keeping the hedges tidy

Another new investment this year was our Shelbourne Reynolds (made in Britain!) hedge trimmer.  Farms on Exmoor like to keep their hedges a little higher, with a bit of overhang to protect the sheep and cattle from the worst of the weather.  Sheep like a bit of shade too, in the hotter months.  It took about 3 weeks to do all 280 acres, and it can only be done between October and February to protect nesting birds.
