Hopes are high for bumper year

Philip Gorringe on Lower Blakemere Farm in Herefordshire was “hopeful for a bumper year this year”.

Camion, Haka and Antelope winter barleys were all “looking good”, however he was “particularly hopeful” for Saffron.

The wheat, however, was “not looking as good as the barley and the grass seed”, he said.

This year Mr Gorringe predicts: “Weather permitting things should be ok.”
