This week Ed has been up north in Gloucestershire at the annual Daylesford organic farm summer open day. The event sees 5,000 people come to visit the 2,000 acre mixed farm each year to get an insight into organic farming on such a large scale.
This year the event hosted the British Festival of the working horse with a particular emphasis on horticulture. As we have some of the most modern horticulture kit in the UK Ed was asked to bring it along and demonstrate what we do at Chagfood. As you can see from the photos it was fantastic cultivation weather and we were able to demonstrate very effectively the process we go through using both the Homesteader and the Kassine to work-up ground from pasture and create 1.2m vegetable beds.
The horses – Blackberry & Picasso – we’re provided by our good friend Mike Paddock. Considering they had only been working in harness for three months they were as fantastic a team of gypsy cobs as you could wish for!
