Arable Crops
The Arable Crops include wheat, barley, peas and oilseed rape. All the crops go to a cooperative grain store, where on arrival they are tested and put into appropriate storage barns.
  • Winter sown wheat: milling for human consumption
  • Spring sown barley: malting or animal feed
  • Spring sown peas: animal feed

Spring sown oilseed rape is grown for oil, processed for margarine and high grade lubricants.

We use a crop consultant to combat commercial selling of pesticides, and in an attempt to keep spray use to a minimum. Crops are rotated to reduce weeds and diseases. We have plenty of natural organic matter such as farmyard manure, to spread on the ground to keep a natural balance of organic matter in the soil and to avoid the use of fertilisers.
