A short post this month!  Like so many of our clients, members of the Scene & Herd team are juggling family responsibilities alongside our business and farming commitments.  Please be assured that if we are on a call and your children need you, or someone comes to the door, we’ll be happy to wait or rearrange.  We know that school holidays can be a struggle so let’s all support each other.
