You Can Call Me Al
It was Open Farm Sunday around the country today and so I popped up to Beauvale Priory Farm near Eastwood.
I've been there many times, both as a visitor and as an actor, where I dressed up as a monk and we told the story of the people that lived in the priory during the 14th century and how the monastery was closed by Henry the Eighth in about 1537.
Besides the usual chickens that really are free range, as they have the run of the farm, and are often seen hassling the visitors who sit outside the cafe, they have now taken delivery of a couple of alpacas.
Related to llamas, but a bit smaller and a lot more cuter. Just look at this fellow, isn't he adorable?
