Blankney Farm Update – 10 July 2019

The harvest season started for Blankney Estates in April, with grass harvesting. This will continue into October (Harvest 1).

In the middle of May, we started our Lucerne harvest, again, this will continue into October (Harvest 2).

Our pea crop, grown for canning and freezing, is supplied to ‘Greenyard’. On the 16th June the vining machines arrived and cleared 420 acres of peas in 4 days (Harvest 3).

We then started harvesting forage crops for Heath Farm Energy – this is the AD site on Metheringham Heath Lane. We harvested the Winter Barley and Winter Rye for forage (Harvest 4-5).

The next harvest will be Oilseed Rape.
