Meridian reports Jan 2013

Meridian Tonight have been looking for innovations in farming going into the next decade and they came to Fourayes on Monday 7th January 2013 for the solution.

Mole drainage, which prevents waterlogged fields, and close planting which doubles the amount of fruit per acre, are just two initiatives introduced by Fourayes over the past few years. Ian Witherden, Fourayes Farm Manager and Phil Acock, Managing Director of Fourayes were interviewed for the lead story on Meridian Tonight for their views on good practice and how farmers must adapt if they are to face the next decade of bad weather predicted by the Met Office. Fourayes can't change the forecast, but are doing everything possible to keep producing high quality Bramleys whatever the weather.
