Winter 2012/2013

What can be said about this winter ...... its been awful (even the dogs agree!)! Cold, wet, and as I write this in the middle of March the situation is still the same! Hopefully it will soon warm up and we can get on with planting potatoes!

September 2012

Ploughing match time! Again our farm foreman James Ward did us proud, winning the John Deere challenge cup and best kept tractor. Lucy was awarded first for her sloe gin, William first for his beetroot, and Pauline Moore first for her Victoria sponge! Other awards were received for potatoes and the overall award for entries was shared between W Moore and Son and E Morrell and Son.

New combine! Joining forces with our neighbour to enable us both to buy a larger combine and just run one between us.

Annual Crop assurance audit on the farm and packhouse was passed, allowing us to continue selling our products as Red Tractor Farm Assured. This means that our products are grown and packed to the standards of the scheme.

Summer 2011

Solar Photovoltaic unit is installed on one of the packing sheds. This will allow us to produce our own electricity. It is situated on the shed that houses the cooler, and so when demand for the cooler is high during the summer, the production of electricity will also be high.
