Blankney Farm Update – 20 September 2019

Harvest 11 has started with the Maize harvest. This crop will be ensiled and then subsequently used in Heath Farm Energy’s anaerobic digester.

We hosted an open day looking at conservation, with particular reference to farm land birds and native English Partridges. The demonstration shows how we as farmers can mitigate the impact of delivering safe, traceable, high quality and affordable food on the environment and wildlife, by quite simply taking 8 meter strips out of production to delivery food adn and habitat for both pollenators and farm land birds.
