THE HEIFER BANKS
At 1.09ha. Heifer Banks is the steepest field on the farm.
Under the CSS regulations, the weeds that can be seen growing in the field (no, not the black and white object, that's a cow:-) have to be cleared by hand as the use of herbicides is forbidden.
One of the most obvious of the weeds are the thistles.
As you can see from the picture on the right they can grow quite tall, in this example they were approaching 1.5 meters (about 5 feet) tall
