Apley farming news

2014-12-05, Wheat in Camp Field, the crop has established well & the wet soil is now not a problemDecember is a fairly quiet farming month & I know this doesn’t look like an exciting field, but it’s 2015’s wheat [which is therefore breadin ‘Camp Field’. I try & get an update from Adrian Joynt, Apley’s Farm manager, every week, to keep abreast with what’s happening at the food source. He told me “the crop [in this photo] has established well & the wet soil is now not a problem [it posed a small problem earlier in the Autumn]. Activities on the farm this week include hedgecutting, fencing, washing machinery & putting it under cover for the winter, as well as catching up in the office with paperwork.
