About Us

My photo
Cousins working together on our family owned farm with the aim of running a commercial modern farm producing high yielding, high standard crops while maximising wildlife diversity. Brian is said to be the farmer and conservationist, whereas Patrick is a conservationist and farmer. This mix has given a new direction for the farm, building upon the work that our fathers and grandfather has done to improve the overall success of the farm business. The farm has gone from strength to strength with the farm being recognised at a national level winning the coveted National FWAG’s Silver Lapwing Award for farming and conservation in 2009 and then Patrick and Brian were named Countryside Farmer of the Year by the Farmers Weekly in 2010.

A Tosser in the Village?

It didn't get there by itself.
This week has seen the launch of Suffolk, Creating the Greenest County and BBC Radio Suffolk’s annual Spring Clean Suffolk campaign promoted as ‘Don’t be a Tosser.’ This annual campaign involves villages organising litter picks and targeting anti-social behaviour such as graffiti and fly tipping. As a village, Westhorpe has a litter pick once a year and it is always very well supported with over 50 people attending last year and it has given people in the village a great opportunity to show the pride they have in where they live. There is however one person who insists on throwing beer cans out of his car window and it is possible to find cans (usually Carlsberg Special Brew) in Westhorpe, Wyverstone, Finningham, Cotton and Gislingham. As far as I am concerned this is completely unacceptable and unnecessary and I would urge everyone to keep their eyes peeled for cans being ejected from car windows. I have my suspicions that they are coming from a maroon Renault but would welcome any feedback in an attempt to put a stop to this. PJB
