People often wonder .... what do farmers do on their land? Here we'll give information and updates, month by month, about the tasks we undertake.
FARMING THIS MONTH
We are continuing with our sugar beet lifting. Our sugar beet goes to be processed at British Sugar’s Cantley factory and supplied to Silver Spoon. You never know the sugar that sweetens your tea may just come from Algy’s crop.
In October and November winter wheat drilling takes place. This is used for animal feed/grain merchants.
This month the fields are being ploughed ready for autumn crops.
The next few months is preparation winter time! This includes hedge trimming, ditch cleaning, machinery maintenance, servicing irrigators and weeding round the Christmas trees.
