Worshop

Harvest

Posted in Farm on Wednesday 31st May 2017 at 11:52am

Under our HLS agreement we can start cutting our silage fields on 1st June, in an ideal world we would have started already to make use of the beautiful weather we have been having but Natural England works by the calendar, not nature, when prescribing stewardship schemes. Our workshop has been busy while the boys are mending, maintaining and making ready all the harvest equipment including mower, turner, baler and bale wrapper. The tractor and handler get a good pressure wash after all the winter work to remove all the dung that accumulates over the months of winter yard work. The weather forecast for the 1st June is rain so we will have to wait a little longer before he harvest begins.
