For those within the farming industry, we offer the opportunity to come to a working farm, that combines practical farming alongside conservation.
Practical farming – We strive to run a farm that is both economical and realistic despite constant constraints of price,regulation,time and weather. We welcome groups onto the farm to discuss current topics affecting their business or the industry.
With this in mind, over the last number of years we have moved towards a greener style of farming, but in no way organic. (refer to Leaf on our Conservation & Schools page)
Business and farming groups
We are able to offer a greater in-depth study of all the subjects mentioned above. As already indicated, the list is endless. We are able to discuss either whole days or half days to groups of all sizes, eg. Supermarkets or smaller retailers. These will be organisations who may well sell farming produce but wish to have a day on a farm to get a better insight as to the product they sell and give more practical information to their consumers . Please contact us regarding packages and dates.
On the farm we have a number of different machines that allow us to undertake seasonal work eg. the combine, which allows us to harvest our crops at the optimum time, both for moisture and quality.
The drill and discs allow us to cover more ground, thereby using less diesel but also drilling the crop safely. The drill will plant all of our crops on the farm.
The crop sprayer is used to apply products to the crop. The products help them to grow and protect them from diseases and pests. We have our sprayer tested and MOT’d to industry standards. This gives us the confidence to apply the products at the proper rate and time. We are members of NORSO and ACCS, which are standards.
