The last article that I wrote for the Villager was in early August 2015 and I commented how many insects and butterflies were on the farm in that spring – the harvest that followed had the highest yielding crops to date but the prices received for the grain went down. I am now writing these notes after most of the 2016 crops have been harvested and it has not been a bumper year – the wet weather in June affected the flowering period (yes all crops do have flowers – but not the pretty colourful ones) and so the grains have generally been smaller and some were diseased or shrivelled. Below average yields have been reported around the country and one grain marketing company has estimated that the UK wheat harvest is 13.9 million tonnes compared with 16.2 million tonnes last year. The good news is that for my group of farms last year’s drying charges of about £14000 have been reduced to £3300 this year after the dry August, with only the beans to cut, and the quality is reasonable. ...
