Staff at Wyevale Nurseries’ Transplants Division in Hereford hosted a National Farmers Union (NFU) Open Day recently (June 29, 2017) inviting members to visit the nursery and gain an insight into the growing process.

NFU Policy Adviser, Clare Greener, and The Farmer journalist, Ian Howie, joined the tour, as well as more than 30 attendees from Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire. 

Steve Ashworth, Director at Wyevale Nurseries, said: “The Open Day was a great success and enjoyed by all that attended. The dramatic change in weather failed to dampen anyone’s spirits as they were taken on a tractor tour, which was a unique, yet authentic, way to view the site and it enhanced the overall experience.

“Ray Jenkins, Production Director of the Transplant Division, and I gave a number of talks during the tour, aided by our Farm Manager, Adrian Cituran. We discussed the various ways that we work to conserve the environment, as well as how the crops are grown on rotation and where our seeds are sourced.”
