New barn foundations in place. Can’t wait to replace the steel containers in the background.
Some of the Higher Oak Farm team spent the bank holiday weekend moving chickens around the farm to different housing locations! The perfect way to get a bank holiday sun tan! :-)
We have had our first crop of Naga Chillies at Higher Oak Farm this week! So far only one person has dared to eat one and boy was it hot!! :-D
The Naga Viper pepper is one of the hottest chili peppers ever measured. It was briefly the "World's Hottest Chilli" in 2011 according to the Guinness World Records with a rating of 1,382,118 Scoville Heat Units (SHU), a figure that surpassed the reading of the Infinity Chilli. In 2012, it was surpassed by the Trinidad moruga scorpion and in 2013 the Carolina Reaper for hottest chili.
The Naga Viper was created in England by chilli farmer Gerald Fowler of The Chilli Pepper Company in Cark, Cumbria. It is claimed to be an unstable three-way hybrid produced from the Naga Morich, the Bhut Jolokia and the Trinidad Scorpion (some of the world's hottest peppers). Due to its hybrid nature it is unable to produce offspring exactly like the parent due to segregation of alleles, and therefore traits.
You just cant beat a warm summer evening up at Higher Oak Farm...
The Higher Oak Farm Team visited the Cheshire Show in 2015 and picked up lots of ideas and inspiration :-) A lovely sunny day!
