Farmer to feature on BBC’s Countryfile


A Kirton Holme farmer will appear on this Sunday’s Countryfile programme - in a feature on this summer’s harvest.

Mark Nundy, of Windy Ridge Veg, was visited this week by presenter Matt Baker, who also co-presents BBC 1’s One Show, to look at the Lincolnshire vegetable harvest.

The official BBC blurb reads: “It’s been one of the best harvests in years, so Matt’s in Lincolnshire where they harvest on a big scale.

“He sees for himself how the very latest technology is helping farmers get the harvest in quickly and efficiently.

“Matt also discovers how science could change the face of harvests to come, when he meets the farmers growing veg that’s been designed to look better, taste better and resist drought better.”

The show will air on BBC One at 6.20pm.
