    ELM Scheme

    ELMS is just a different crop where the output isn’t measured by heaving trailer loads of lovely golden grain or white beet but by how many boxes you tick on some nerds clipboard. I haven’t found an option in mid tier that pays as well or can be delivered as easily as spring barley so I’m out...

    Today at work

    Stubble cultivating wheat stubbles in readiness for beet drilling on some light blowy land. Renault temperature stable at last despite travelling at over 10k. A few funny noises from gearbox though when you hit a hard bit.

But fact is these docs we upload are not live. They are out of date and unmaintaned from the moment they are uploaded. It’s a...

    what grinds your gears

    Bank help lines. Been sat here for 3/4 of hour now mostly on hold because clearly they have no idea how to solve the problem. All i'll say is if your bank resorts to using the Post Office to deposit cheques then find another bank that doesn't rely on the Post Office. Its not a secure or...

    ELM Scheme

    I was ploughing yesterday morning. Ploughing out “game strips”. It looked really tidy when I’d finished. A pleasant satisfying easy job. No forms, no workshops, no paperwork and it will be joined back to the bulk of the field and sown with barley this year. No rip off seed mix at £100 per acre...
