It’s been quite the jam-packed year so far!
Our youngest member of the Cuckoo Mill Family, Beth, left us for a few months to go travelling to Singapore, Australia and New Zealand with her ‘partner in crime’, Emrys. They had the time of their lives – even sky-dived but accidentally forgot to mention that bit to us beforehand!
Beth’s sister – Emily and fiance Carwyn are getting married in August home here in Pembrokeshire. Like with any wedding – more hands make light work! Especially when you’re celebrating in a marquee in a field afterwards!
Mama Cuckoo Mill is being kept busy – she’s just completed a big task of peeling 45kg red onion to make E&C’s caramelised red onion chutney for the wedding day. No small job indeed.
Don’t forget to join us every Friday at Haverfordwest Farmers’ Market, 1st & 3rd Saturday at Aberystwyth, 2nd Saturday at the Mumbles and the last Saturday of each month at the Uplands.
For more update – follow us on Facebook.

Celebrate Christmas with a Pembrokeshire Cuckoo Mill turkey
We love the Autumn time here at Cuckoo Mill, the colour of the trees and hedgerows all change and it’s that calm period before we start our chaotic (and organised!) few months! Autumn is the perfect time to celebrate the traditional Harvest, especially at Harvest Farmers’ Markets and Harvest Fairs!

Julie and Emily went along to Aberystwyth’s Harvest Festival whilst Beth visited the beautiful Mumbles on the Gower.

Meanwhile, Carwyn and Emily ran the show at Mumbles Produce Market last month. The sun shone, delicious turkey steak samples went down a storm with lots of happy customers.
If you still haven’t made it down to award-winning Haverfordwest Farmers’ Market, it’s a must! Especially over the summer holidays with so many activities for children while you shop (and taste samples!)

Christmas Day has passed and thousands of our customers have now tucked into a Cuckoo Mill turkey with their family and friends.
Thanks to you all for choosing a Cuckoo Mill Christmas turkey this year, whether it’s an annual tradition or the first time.
We had three busy days at the farm on 22nd, 23rd & 24th December, opening the gates to over a thousand customers to collect their Christmas turkey.
Mother Hen was on the telephone, Emily was on mulled wine, Marta & Beth in charge of dishing out the birds and the boys were on traffic control (WOW, there was some traffic!)
The Turkey Team ready to welcome everyone to the farm!
Best wishes to all of our customers for a successful 2017 ahead.
Margaret, Martin, Julie, Emily and Beth.
We do love a Farmers’ Market….especially at Christmas!
Today, Carwyn & Aled are off to Aberystwyth Farmers’ Market….and Kate & Angharad are off to the Uplands Produce Market in Swansea! Here’s all of us getting ready to leave…with our Santa hats on ready!
Getting ready for our last Farmers’ Markets for 2016!

July and August are always busy months for us here at Cuckoo Mill Farm. We’ve welcomed a great number of baby turkeys to the farm since the middle of July, in preparation for Christmas.
Like any baby animal, they needs lots of care, lots of food, water, warmth and plenty of comfy bedding which is sawdust!
They won’t be small for long…day by day they grow bigger and bigger!
Here’s some pictures of our fluffy chicks a few days ago…
Some nosy chicks!
Settling into their new patch!
