Norfolk Farm walk January 26th

The next farm walk will take place next week, on Tuesday January 26th, at Abbey Farm, East Walton, Kings Lynn, Norfolk, PE32 1PP, held by kind permission of Bill and Tom Lewis.

Achieving a tremendous 8.82 tonnes per hectare, Bill and Tom Lewis saw a record breaking harvest last year, the result is the largest documented on a second year crop to date.

We’re excited that we’ll be able to showcase this crop on the walk. We hope you’ll be able to join us to learn more about both the value, and future, of growing miscanthus.

Peterborough farm walk February 25th

Our February farm walk will take place on Thursday February 25th, at Thetford House Farm, Baston, Peterborough, PE6 9NU, held by kind permission of Mark Richardson.

Order of the day:

Visitors should aim to arrive for 10.00 am, for coffee, and we’ll kick off with a talk from us about the opportunities the crop offers, followed by a tour of the farm by the hosts, and back to the farm offices for a spot of lunch, on us, where you can ask questions about how miscanthus might fit into your current set up.

Grower forum dates

Our grower forums are held exclusively for existing Terravesta growers, and to make life easy, we’ve issued dates all over the UK to ensure that travel isn’t a problem.

The forums are a chance for us to update all growers on our plans for the year ahead, to announce new opportunities, and to inform on new operational processes and changes.

They’re also an ideal platform for knowledge sharing, and for promoting best practice on farm.

We encourage our growers to come along to share their experiences with the crop, and get the latest advice for crop management from the experts. It’s also a great opportunity to network, over a complimentary lunch.

Each grower forum starts at 10.30 am for coffee, and we will kick off with a presentation at 11:00 am. This will be followed by a networking lunch at around 13.00.
