Our work station in the barn
Fergus demonstrates how to split the wood by hand
Using a range of traditional tools, we shave the wood, cut out notches and assemble the hurdles. The whole process is very efficient and sustainable, beginning with harvesting from our own woods, and using as much as possible from each length of wood, to using leftover scraps as fire kindling.
This frame is where we assemble the hurdles
The finished product
New hurdles keep sheep in the grass carpark to graze
