This morning I enjoyed a cycle around the
Canterbury country side with Mikes wife Sally.
It is so flat around here making a cycling a breeze.
|Nice flat country and lots of cows in little paddocks|
Mike arranged some visits for me including with his agronomist and a large neighboring family farming enterprise which manages a quite diverse business. This includes, arable farming, contracting, seven dairies and a carrot washing business which Mike & Sally have shares in. Michelle provided me with an interesting insight into the systems used in running their business.
Later in the afternoon I cut my teeth on Mikes potatoes harvester.
|This is what we are digging for|
|This machine windrows 2 rows into the next two rows|
|Hard at work|
|About to get dug|
|Quite pretty place to work right by the sea|
|The trucks are full, time for a beer|
