Norfolk farming conference

Monday Fiona and I went for the first scan. The baby will be due on the 27th August. I'm hoping It will be an early harvest this year ready for the new arrival.
Norfolk farming conference on Thursday where they played a video of me at harvest and the team. Guy Smith as chairman asked us questions afterwards and then opened up to the floor. I'll put the video on pxfarms1 on YouTube if you'd like to view.
We have managed this week to start fertilising. The oilseed rape and second wheats have been completed and We aim to start the first wheats next week.
The second bay of the new building has been erected. I hope to see the third completed by the second week in March.

4wd lorry

This is the ultimate lorry for getting around in the snow. High clearance 4wd. I got it from southern Ireland. Only downside is it is left hand drive.

Polish drivers take a wrong turn

Two polish drivers decided to drive down the office drive which isn't suitable for Artic lorries without the snow. It took 2 hours to get them out.

Ice truckers

Caroline Stocks Nuffield Scholar had to hitch a lift with Andy in J4 PXF. Rob, Andy and Tony had to dig the lorries out to make the Sunday deliveries.
