The harvest was completed at Hope Farm a week ago. It's a tricky business getting the timing right. We waited for a dry spell so that we could harvest dry grain and not have to spend money on drying it post-harvest. As you can imagine this is a gamble in a British summer but we got it right and saved ourselves about £8000 in costs as a result.
The wheat yields look pretty good and the bird numbers this summer are impressive - I'll give you details when the figures are finalised.
We spend 90% of net income on conservation, public education and advocacy
