Here’s one of those useless pieces of trivia for the collection: In the 11 months of this year the stables at Summerhill have produced more than 975 tonnes of compost from stable bedding.

 If your average African male elephant weighs 6 tonnes that’s the equivalent of 162.5 elephants!

 No wonder the gardens at the farm are so stunning - that’s a lost of compost that we produce each year!!
