A Royal Palace in Falkland, a Folk Museum in Ceres, a National Trust Mansion House near Cupar, Balmerino Abbey, Lindores Abbey, Newburgh, Dunbog, Glenduckie, Creich, Birkhill, Ballinbreich, Abdie, Upper Flisk and more in beautiful North East Fife. Also the occasional wander.

Tayview September 14th 2012 North Fife
Tayview September 14th, cloudy and windy day drying the grain fields and then the sun came out fully.
Combine coming up to the turn at Ballinbreich Farm, North Fife.
Shredding the straw, rather than lay the straw for collection and future use as bedding etc. This way humus is restored back to the soil maintaining a more healthy balance on a bacterial micro-organism level.
Every couple of cuts the barley is off-loaded into trailers. My feeling is the yield is a good one in weight though the malting quality maybe marginal.
