We’ve finished drilling our winter wheat and are now busy preparing the farm for winter and the first frosts. As always pests are a concern so we are checking for slugs where we can, fixing the rabbit fencing, and trying to control the pigeons, though that’s a never-ending task!
On top of that there’s lots of maintenance, hedge cutting, ditch digging and machinery repairs.
There’s always plenty to do before the clocks go back, the days are shorter and the winter takes its grip.
