Fields under Fleece

Agricultural Fleece in West Sussex

Agricultural Fleece on Fields in West Sussex

My son Nathan described the field as ‘a giants bed’ because viewed from a distance it looks like a huge stripey bed-sheet. I love the fact that children see things that grown-ups pass by!

Fleece is used in farming to protect crops from frost and cold temperatures. It stops young plants from getting ‘bitten’ by frost, and keeps soil temperatures up during the daytime when the sun shines.
