Blankney Farm Update – 3 March 2023

Our Sugar Beet harvest is finally complete!

It’s been a tricky season this year, a result of the impact of the protracted frosty period – all our fields were successfully harvested and with some careful management of the delivery process, we didn’t have any rejections.

In recent weeks, we have successfully delivered our malting barley stores and we are presently busy delivering wheat to Kerrys and Sedamyl.

We now start in earnest our spring drilling campaign with spring barley to finish; vining peas and spring beans have been drilled in the last two weeks and we will now concentrate on our dry pea drilling and then, later in the month, sugar beet establishment.
