For all the kind shooters who regularly ask Steven and myself how we are progressing with harvesting on the farm; I am pleased to report that all the winter barley and winter oilseed rape has been cut and we are now combining the wheat crop and trying to bring the crop into the barn dry before the weather changes.

This time of the year is always very busy on the farm and it remains extremely busy until the end of October.

I am sorry to say that a fox ate our last chicken who was a chancer and only happy running around the farm during the day rather than staying in her chicken coop. Unfortunately the risk of her freedom came at a cost!. We have decided not to have anymore pet chickens as we get fond of them and to see just a heap of feathers by the pen is upsetting.

We hope to see you all again on the 7 AUGUST at GATTON BOTTOM SHOOTING GROUND. 100 BIRD REG ENGLISH SPORTING (All shooters are welcome).

Until then we hope that you all continue to enjoy the summer sunshine and have a good week.

We will be very busy on the farm combining oilseed rape etc and preparing the land for next year’s crop. So much uncertainty surrounds farming at the moment and the situation in UKRAINE has made it virtually impossible to confidently budget for the next 12 months.

I am pleased to say that this year’s difficult harvest has nearly finished and all the winter oilseed rape is hopefully, safely in the ground.

The weather for farmers has been atrocious this year and the lack of sunshine has meant that the crop quality has suffered in many incidents.

Once again, farmers including ourselves are seeing trespass and damage from (I have to be politically correct!!) poachers. Gates pulled off their hinges, padlocks and chains cut … then they drive all over our newly drilled crops. Every year this happens to farmers crops and property. I do wonder if this happens in the beautiful Cotswolds … I must find the time to text Clarkson and ask!.

We are still keeping busy combining, drilling oilseed rape, cultivating etc etc. It is always so busy on the farm this time of the year… as well as organising our usual clay shoots. Just as we start combining the nights become darker earlier, which is certainly not helpful to arable farmers. The wet weather has made harvesting very difficult for many farmers this year but it has made it ideal for drilling next years crop.

It was lovely to see a few of our regular shooters today who had not been able to shoot for several months/years due to poor health or family commitments. We thank you for all your support and wish everyone a perfect week.

Court Farm 1st August 2021

Once again we were very lucky with the weather today. It wasn’t until the end of the shoot that the heavens opened!!. Driving home along the A22 towards Blindley Heath the road was so deep in water, that the traffic could barely get through. Cars were taking it in turn to venture through the deep flood water.

One of our farm cottages have been flooded out and our road is like a sea of mud … what a start to August, who would have thought that it is summer!!.

I can honestly say that there is never a dull moment here on the farm. On Friday I lay in a London hospital with tubes and needles in every part of my body whilst under anaesthetic. I was then blessed with a good nights sleep and then it was straight back to work ready for the shoot today. A big thank you to the early morning shooters who helped me by choosing and loading up their own cartridges …. Woodley’s Cash and Carry . One thing for sure .. we will not be harvesting any wheat for a few days! I think Steven and I are going to diversify into boat building (Kevin don’t you dare say anything ).

We are very busy on the farm. Combining barley, hay making, baling as well as the usual huge amount of paperwork that farmers have to contend with.

It is a race against the weather at this time of the year, this means very long working hours.

The weather forecast for the week is basically wet!!. Thank goodness we haven’t started harvesting yet. This weather would be every farmers nightmare during harvest. Who has watched Jeremy Clarkson’s Farm which is being shown on Amazon Prime?. The Grand Tour presenter swaps super cars for agriculture. Jeremy is helped on the farm by a young man called Kaleb Cooper. Kaleb is a hard working, skilled and very likeable 21 year old Chipping Norton local who is totally dedicated to farming. He says “Farming for me is not a job, it’s a way of life”. It would be fair to say that without Kaleb, Clarkson would be in a pickle! This is a wonderful feel good and funny programme (8 Episodes) … Educational, funny and pure entertainment!.

We hope to see you all again next Sunday and thank you for your support.

We hope that you all have a wonderful week and enjoy the glorious sunshine. Steven and I are feeling a little nervous about the potential thunderstorms and heavy rain that we may see on WEDNESDAY. The last thing that our winter barley crop needs is heavy persistent rain which could flatten the crop … which then causes us lots of problems now that we are so near to harvesting/combining the crop. Farmers never know whether or not they have had a good harvest until their produce is safely in the grain store. Fingers crossed!.

Court Farm 3rd May 2021

The weather forecast for Bank Holiday Monday was atrocious, but thankfully it did not start raining until the early evening and by then everything was packed away and we had finished the shoot. Steven and myself desperately needed the rain for our arable crops which have been struggling to grow in such dry conditions, ...especially the spring wheat that had been drilled at the beginning of April and was waiting for a drink!. (We just did not want the rain to start until Monday evening)
