Construction of our Sukup Silos

New Site Entrance Project

We are excited to announce the successful completion of our new entrance project which opened just before Christmas. Recognised by those familiar with our site, the necessity for expansion became evident as our previous entrance proved inadequate for our growing needs, potentially hindering business development.

The project encompassed a significant upgrade, transforming dirt tracks into a 1.7km concrete road equipped with passing lanes and three ditch crossings. Now, our access leads directly onto the A18, providing excellent connectivity to the M18—a game-changer for our businesses.

Despite the weather throwing us some curveballs, we’re grateful to everyone who worked tirelessly to keep the project on track and ensure its timely completion. ✅ Special thanks to Met Engineers Ltd 4Urban UK Farm Gates ALIVE CONSTRUCTION LIMITED

Meet the team!

Pat joined us for harvest 23 as a harvest casual. Pat demonstrated an excellent attitude towards work, never let us down throughout a tough harvest season, and proved to be a hit with all the team. He was so good we couldn’t let him go, so Pat has joined the team on a full-time basis. Thank you for all your hard work Pat, It’s a pleasure to have you.  

Seed Dressing

Time to get dressed. Here we have GFP’s mobile seed dressing unit. They come out a couple of times a year to dress and clean our seed corn. They remove any chaff and dress it with any necessary coating for planting. The next stop for the seed will be the seed drill in the coming weeks.

Land Work During The Frost

It was great to be back out in the fields last week with Jonny and the Xerion. We took advantage of the frosty conditions and managed to sneak a couple of days of cultivation in. Our Shiny new grain silos can be seen here, they even make the mighty Xerion seem small.

The maize harvest is finally completed!

It’s been a long waiting game for us to get the last of maize harvested this year. You may notice this is a new venture for Rockscape, here we are using a combine to harvest the grain, rather than using a forage harvester and sending it to our energy plant. This is a trial, to see how we can handle and dry the grain itself in our silos. The trial is looking good so far, so keep your eyes peeled for more grain maize in our rotation.

AD Workspaces

Our new workspaces are coming along nicely, we decided to renovate 7 containers to be our new central hub on the AD Plant. These photos show the first stages of progress; dividing the spaces and inserting new walls, installing LED lights, make improvements to existing walls and woodwork, and install additional electrics. Many thanks to all who have helped with the works so far.

Meet the Team

We would like to extend a warm welcome to our newest recruit, Matthew Bayles, AKA Marlon. Marlon joined us at the back end of 2023 and has settled in a treat. In his free time, he can be found on the back of a horse, or out with friends on his mountain bike. However, at work, he will be taking control of 240 horses in the shape of a Fendt 724. Welcome to the team Marlon.

Ross Hewson Celebrates 10 Years Service

2024 brings with it a celebration of a decade at Rockscape! Ten years seem to have passed in the blink of an eye and what a journey it has been.

With growth and development, I am proud to oversee 6 companies here at North Moor. I feel grateful to have been part of this incredible journey and the lessons learned from Tim and Rebecca Bletcher, and their family have been inspiring and invaluable.
