The article looks at the construction of a new turkey shed by Robert Garner in his farm in Norfolk, England. The new sheds which is a second-hand industrial-spec building from Milton Keynes, cost £12,000. He expresses his concerns about his crop of Solstice milling wheat which he sells to Warburton's on a contract. He decided to go for winter beans instead of spring beans because of his disappointment with the prospect for the latter's yield.
