A great spell of weather towards the end of this week has given us the opportunity to finish getting our Winter Barley harvested. I am pleased with the yield after quite a wet winter and particularly dry spring, which made growing a bit of a slow process.
It’s a relief all-round for my team, as we get our new combine harvester racing through these early crops…as you can see, this state-of-the-art machinery is making short work of cutting, thrashing and collecting the Barley Crop, leaving a nice trail of straw behind to be bailed and sold for animal herd use elsewhere on other farms.
Look out for further interesting posts as our harvest season progresses.

Just a quick note to say how pleased my father was with the work both Ed and Ruby completed in the garden today, quite a lot of hard hands on work but my father was (thankfully!!) of the opinion that both of them worked with a lot of care and attention to detail, he’s a bit of a perfectionist so I was really pleased that he also noticed how conscientiously the work was carried out.
