Meet the Mcfarlanes

This is Alistair Mcfarlane with his family Debbie and Freddy.  The Mcfarlanes have the butchers shop in Middleton-in-Teesdale and I often pop in after work to get my meat for the week before coming home to Swaledale.  Debbie attends Middleon Primary School and Freddy is in the nursery and starts 'big school' in September.  This weekend they had a great time camping by the river at our sister farm Hoggarths.  If you like the idea of wild camping visit http://www.swaledalecamping.co.uk/ its a great site.

Debbie found a thrush's nest built in a most unusual place in the folding arm of a piece of farming equipment.  It is strangely constructed of twigs, straw, sheep's wool and plastic bale string!!
