Perhaps a sign of the times we should all be aware of. Compared to many parts of the country I don’t think we live in a very impoverished area, but it turns out that the local food bank has been inundated and needed more space.

186 in the shed of nice hay ...will it be worth anything? ... .who knows !
It will be round here - everybody on about 60% of usual yields and our neighbour had some burnt in the field by some brats with a box of matches the night before last :facepalm:

Edit... to say, only a few bales as they were still dotted about as they'd dropped out of the baler.

Quite chuffed about it though. It's from the dutch version of nature england, no chems, no fertiliser/muck/manure, nothing done to it after seeding somewhere in oktober (or thereabouts).
9 pieces, between 5 and 6 hectare, 4 to 5 tonnes of seed, 210 idiot brick straw bales. Who will beat that low :LOL:

The new Environmental Land Management Scheme (ELMS) must be flexible and have farming at its heart, the NFU said today, as the government consultation draws to a close.
