1st August 2011
Harvesting is now underway, with three fields of Premiere potatoes (an early variety) nearly all out of the ground and transported on to be graded prior to dispatch to McCain's.
Next to follow will be the Oilseed Rape and then the Wheat. As always all guests staying at The Isle Bed and Breakfast are welcome to have a look at the farming operation and talk to those employed working the land. Considering the potato lifter (the machine on the left) is worth in the region of £100,000 the skill taken to operate this machinery, efficiently and safely, is considerable.
