Post driver

Time for some maintenance

Posted in Farm on Wednesday 29th May 2019 at 11:01am

Over the years on many occasions we have spent time digging out black thorns or bramble prickles from our arms and hands after working with our hedgerows ,on our Devon banks, around the farm. Many years ago, Miles even had to resort to having the surgeon take some black thorns out or his arm! Laying hedges and replacing rotten or broken fence posts are some of the worst jobs. Joy of joy we now have a mechanical post driver which can insert and drive home replacement fence posts. This has two advantages. Firstly, no prickles to dig out and secondly, we can put the posts in without having to resort to cutting back the overhanging bushes before work starts. We win and the environment wins too.
