A long but productive day on the farm. Our team did a great job as always!
It’s mustard time and the sun is shining
We’re planting mustard with the Serto and power harrow today…and the sun is shining. It’s a good day.
Safety first – first aid, chainsaw and cherry picker training
Safety is paramount at P.X. Farms.
In January 2022, HSE quoted:
Agriculture has the worst rate of worker fatal injury (per 100,000) of all the main industry sectors, with the annual average rate over the last five years around 20 times as high as the all-industry rate.
More than half of the workers killed were aged 60 years or older.
The safety and protection of our team are essential to us. We recently had a first aid course, chainsaw and cherry picker training.
You never know when you may need to leverage these life-saving skills to make a difference to someone else.
Liquid fertiliser and Sky News
We’ve been collecting liquid fertiliser from Great Yarmouth. Sky News were filming so Andy has been caught on camera….again.
Removing the pebble dash render reveals a hidden beauty
For those that don’t know, the Farmhouse on Scotland Farm is going through a huge renovation. For the past 25 or so years, James has had a vision and it’s now in progress! We were always told that it was built from another house in the village and a real mish-mash. The pebble dash render has been coming off today, the bricks are beautiful but sadly have deteriorated. So render will be going back on to protect it…will it or won’t it be pebble dash again!
When the evening comes…
Farming under attack
It’s really sad when we come across vandalism on the farm. Today, the seed forklift helping to keep the drilling going has been attacked, and 24 metres of fencing broken with every rail and post snapped. This isn’t just disruptive but really sad for the team.
Raymond is in pursuit
Striking skies, dry day and Raymond is out in the fields.
Keeping our kit to the P.X. brand
Having a makeover. Raymond has painted up the main cage. The colour is non-random of course. Well done Raymond!
Large delivery has arrived
Glad to say that seeds have arrived so it must be nearly time for spring barley drilling.
