    Apologies if this has been done before, but there are several members on here who do things differently, would be quite interesting to see what goes on.
    I know travel would be an issue for a lot of us, maybe it could be a 'virtual' farm walk. There has obviously been a lot of picture threads where we see a new project but rarely see it in context with the other parts of the farm.

    For example, @Clive has a lot of cover crops, which is rarely done in my area, we see the odd picture of the drill in massive cover crops but you never see the 'whole picture'.

    I'd be interested, obviously not much going on here in the winter.
    Hope it takes off (y)
    This week I've been:

    More rain in July than June gave us, about 4 inches so far. Pish.

    Could have a quarterly actual real farm walk if members were interested in letting people look round? Would be quite a big ask of anyone as obviously it takes bit of time to get ready for something like that.

    A topic #farming #agriculture #diversification #freerange #dairy #livestock add these into your tweets, and then those using the search facility will find your tweets, and not others without.

    With a bit of luck we'll be celebrating 100 years here next year. You'll be more than welcome to the BBQ
