A gaggle of cars, about 20 people and a LOO! No idea of nationality, I guess Eastern European but who ever they are, they work really hard at this. 7 am till 3 pm at least, in fog, damp or sun. Eventually a tractor and trailer comes down from the main buildings about a mile away and takes the crop away.
So if you see red Sweet Williams in the supermarkets this next week - they probably came from here!
