Ewan Stark – Greenvale Growing
I’d like to pass on a big thank-you to you and your team for all your hard work and assistance over our potato harvest. It was a very difficult stop-start season to which you never failed to supply us with good, hardworking pickers for the potato harvesters, sometimes very at short notice. This was inevitably key in us being able to finish before the frosts set in.
