Just to add, when I said "I do the majority of work on one farm". I meant majority of my work. Not majorly of work on the whole farm XD

.. And 5000 acres being the total of farmed land, large amount is contracted.

What farm is that?!

R.H.Maddever farms in Whepstead.


Hi Stuart, If you are doing all that at 23; what will you be doing at 46?

No idea! Still got a lot to learn before then XD

No, not seen you on the forum before....................:ROFLMAO:
hi im sandy and not that grumpy in reality,im shy and retiring so probably wont post much:shy:

Hah! I like your style! Actually I think everyone should "come out" ... No not in that way! I mean state their real names, so we know who's who! As I am from the machinery trade, I chose to use my real name rather than a "stage name". Many manufacturers watch the forum, many don't or not allowed to respond. Sure we all have to be careful in this day and age with social media. I post when I can add advice or an honest opinion, not more, not less.

Hello
I'm Richard I've never farmed in my life. I've been helping a very good friend on his place for six months.
He has all machinery and to be honest i'm not very mechanically gifted. I get on better with animals. I don't really bond with tractors. That just sounds wrong, but you know what I mean.
When I had been helping a few weeks I picked up the nerve to tell him I didn't understand a lot of things he said. Haulm was one of the first words he explained to me because I kept calling it stalks when I cleaned the grading shed floor with a leaf blower. So that's why I went for haulmblower.
I never expected to post here but there are a couple of threads that really interest me so I thought I would chip in.
I knew farming was a hard job, but never realised how complicated it is. People don't know the half of it.
Oh yes, if anyone tells you something is idiot proof, I am available to prove them wrong.

Hey everyone,
I'm Stuart, 23 from south Bury St Edmunds area. I'm self employed and do the majority of work on one 5000 acre farm, recently became combine and sprayer operator as well as doing cultivations, topping and other land work.

Can't say as I'd have to shoot you! Well I can tell you it's that biscuit tins we leave to McVities and co' now! We've moved on some!! We're even going to be nice and use a marquee at Lamma (bit too far south for you I guess?) so we can showcase some new machines and sections of machines! Are you going to AgriScot in 13 days?

Five nature-recovery projects spanning nearly 100,000ha across the West Midlands, Cambridgeshire, the Peak District, Norfolk and Somerset have been announced by the government and Natural England today (Thursday, May 26).

This is the equivalent in size to all 219 current National Reserves.

The aim of the projects is to deliver nature recovery at a landscape scale, helping to tackle biodiversity loss, climate change and improve public health and well-being.

All five projects will make a significant contribution towards the national delivery of the international commitment to protect at least 30% of land and...
