Our Founder, Mark Walker’s harvest update
It’s been a mixed harvest. Several of our OSR crops were wiped out by flea beetle and those that survived struggled with yield having never recovered from the battering they took in the Autumn. We were pleasantly surprised by the wheat yields and managed to get the majority of it harvested before the wet weather struck. However, as per usual, the biggest impact on our profitability are prices which have continued on their erratic nose dive. We will probably break even or make a small loss when all of the crop is accounted for.
A lot of work for nothing! I’m beginning to think of farming as a lifestyle choice rather than a career.
