The new site in Strines is going ahead! After a long Winter of negotiating we are thrilled that we are close to exchanging contracts to rent the site in Strines. We consider ourselves very lucky to have met landowners that get what we are trying to do. As it would have been so disappointing if all the business and experience we have built up over the last five years came to nothing.
Afterall, last year we grew (and sold!) 1700kg of organic veg.
Top 10 crops for yields
French beans 79kg
Top 10 crops for income
French beans £418
Purple sprouting broccoli £203
Broad beans £188
I have spent the Winter trying to work out how we are going to afford all the new equipment and initial start-up costs to set up the new site. And I’m quite excited to say we are going to try and crowdfund for some of it. More details on this will follow soon.
