Poppies to be proud of

Here at Eyebrook Bird Feeds, we have painted 11 of our flock with red poppies to commemorate this year’s Remembrance Day, which has caused quite a stir with the local community. With the sheep happily grazing on the farm, drivers have been making ewe-turns as they pass the flock, who carry on grazing oblivious to the attention.  To see the sheep painted with poppies featured on BBC East midlands today click here 

Ahead of Remembrance Sunday, some of our flock have been moved from their road-side field back to the family farm, to be on parade in support of church services in the village of Great Easton.
As well as growing crops for the bird feed business and encouraging wildlife with wildflower planting, we graze sheep on the farm’s grass paddocks. Our family proudly supports Remembrance Day and this year we wanted some of the sheep to get involved! We dodged the rain and have painted 11 ewes with poppies, to show our support for the poppy appeal.
Eyebrook Wild Bird Feeds are part of our traditional family farm where we use the best of modern and traditional agricultural practices creating a more sympathetic environment for birds, insects and wild animals. Our flock of sheep thrive on its rich Leicestershire pasture, producing lambs in the spring and wool in the summer.
Look out for our sheep tonight on East Midlands Today at 6.30pm.
