Oilseed rape – making it shine

Never start with a load of facts of figures. Farmer David Jones starts with the beauty of a crop like oilseed rape and asking his farm visitors what they already know about this distinctive crop in the spring landscape – and how often they eat it.

David gets his visitors right up close to oilseed rape to see and feel the crop’s characteristics. A marvellous mini field is used to show the magic of numbers of seeds sown and harvested from every square metre of field.

Connecting the crop to everyday foods is easy with some preparation – and can even lead to a pop-up picnic.
