We realised long ago that our most interesting fields would eventually become a challenge both financially, and in time-investment.
This has prompted us to follow up on many already researched sites.
The joy of this research has resulted in multiple sites that require a survey as soon as possible. Time is short as the Winter Wheat and Barley has already started to grow well. On top of this, we have to battle with the British weather especially as it has been very wet over the last two Winters.
Normally, we would have probably started off with some freshly drilled OSR but some farmers are giving it a miss due to the related problems in growing Oil Seed Rape.
This weekends weather forecast doesn't look good as Storm Arwen heads our way. On the flip side, this will give us more chance to review some of the many sites we've short-listed for permissive approach.
I spoke to a potential landowner who also know's a few other landowners in the area. This will mean more research <rolling eye's>
Whatever happens we'll update you as it happens.
