Grain Store


Great tour last week, just when the farmers were finishing all the wheat harvesting. Really dusty on the farm with all the combine harvester’s and tractors in operation. The weather has been ideal this year for the farmers. We visited the grain store which is massive – and the last loads were coming in from the 1000 acre farm. The Barn has to be kept at the right temperature to prevent the grain getting damp, hence the blowers which are inserted into the mountains of wheat. Out in the countryside about 5 minutes later we had some fantastic sightings of the buzzards. Birds of prey are very active this time of year, the harvest is cut and the fields have small remains of wheat grains and the small mammals have to make do – but leave themselves very exposed as they can no longer hide in the tall wheat stems. Good day on the Farm.
