harvestLetham Shank is a family farm in Northumberland, England on the banks of the River Tweed, growing wheat, winter and spring barley, canola (oilseed rape) and grass.

Before the foot & mouth epidemic of 2001, a flock of about 300 breeding ewes, mainly mules bred from the Swaledale were kept. After the epidemic, a combination of increased bureaucracy and poor prices forced the sale of the flock.

This is an excellent website with lots of detail about crops grown and the methods used to grow and harvest them.
