Having started harvest earlier than we have for many years, we are now back to intake tonnages similar to most years. The slow down has helped the store catch up with getting the store prepared as a late delivery pattern meant the store had over 11000 Tonnes still in stock at the beginning of July. Week commencing the 17th saw the store outload over 3500 tonnes whilst trying to provide a collection service to the members – no small task.
The rain has enabled us to clean those bins emptied and we are amalgamating other old crop to bins to be as prepared as possible for when the harvest really starts. Hopefully any day soon!!.
