A hidden cache

We are busy renovating an attic area and in the process have come upon an old secret cache of maize hidden by the pine martin who once called it home. These delightful creatures can be a pest in buildings as they will use any material available from plastic to rubber to insulation to create warm nests. Martin proofing buildings is the only way forward as a law in 2008 made it illegal to mutilate, trap, transport or sell pine martins or ‘martre de pin’ as they are called in French. In any case we think they are wonderful and enhance our organic farm and woodlands so martin proofing is the only way to proceed.
