Harvest began over a week ago at Vine House Farm at Deeping St Nicholas.

Farmer Nicholas Watts says his combine was going a week last Saturday in a crop of organically grown stubble turnips.

He said: “Stubble turnips are drilled straight after harvest into the stubble for sheep or cows to eat during late autumn or winter.

“I have grown them so that other organic growers can sow them for their animals to eat. It was one of only two crops in the country.”
