    Agents’ cheery outlook post-BPS

    Was talking to someone not long ago and he said “My dad had a 400 acre dairy farm and put 3 kids through famous boarding schools, I’m farming 3000 acres and it’s a struggle to put one through the local grammar!” Makes you wonder doesn’t it?

    Selling land for railway.

    Railway line is by the hedge, bottom of this grass field. Field below line has flooded, not real river channel is between the blue pipes on the bridge. We are fairly fast flowing here, so as long as it goes off soon, it wont hurt the wheat too much.

    Selling land for railway.

    You’ll get told off for leaving the gates open whilst you’re trying to cart corn off the field. If it’s dry and they use cheap coal then they will set fire to your crops, then claim it wasn’t them. It’s a pain in the backside.

    House Self-Build

    In theory, yes. In practice, wait for the bollokings to roll in when you can’t get them to come at the right times.

    House Self-Build

    The easiest way in my experience is to get a quote to first fix. you can arrange plumber and sparks if builder can’t, but builder and joiner must be virtually joined at hip up to first fix anyway so best to get a team that work together to guarantee smooth build. From first fix on its then up...

    TFF's ELMS Questions time ? Number 2

    @Clive Not strictly elms related but can you ask him about the catchment sensitive farming/Waterboard grant postcode lottery please? It is unfair that my neighbours can’t access the same grant money as me and some can’t access any at all, despite us all farming in the same river catchment. This...

    TFF's ELMS Questions time ? Number 2

    Is it possible to tailor elms to regions rather than have a on size fits all scheme. At the moment their are plenty of options for east Anglian arable farmers, but barely any for livestock farmers and mixed farmers in particular?
