Grain Store Update

We are currently having a new grain shed built on the farm. Here is the latest building update.

I made the mistake of saying that the grain store looked nearly finished and was given a full run down of all the jobs that still needed to be done.

  • The roof needs putting in place.
  • A drainage system is needed.
  • Guttering needs to be added.
  • The floor needs concreting.
  • A door needs to be added.

These are just the jobs I can remember before I fell asleep!

I think the grain store is extremely large and in my view spoils the landscape, but needs must (oh and it does mean that I am probably going to be able to keep some pigs where the grain was stored previously, fingers crossed!).

I asked last week what was going to happen to the ugly concrete slabs on the side of the grain store and was told that they would remain like that. I have since suggested that as it is the Year of Food and Farming that I could launch a competition at the school I work in for mural designs which could then be painted onto the concrete. This suggestion went down like a concrete slab! I’ll just have to keep working on the farmers and provide them with evidence of fantastic art work from the children in order to win the them over.
