An important part of the farming year is preparing the fields for growing crops.
Usually this process has been finished by now but in many areas the wet weather has meant ploughing is just getting started.
The process of ploughing makes a long narrow trench in the ground - called a furrow - used to plant crops in.
The soil - or tilth - needs to be clear and free from grass and other vegetation, which farmers refer to as trash.
Farmers grow crops to subsidise their annual income, and to feed their livestock.
Stephen Withers produces a variety of cereals which are all grown for different purposes.
Once harvested, the oats are taken to the mills to be weighed and checked. The process to making porridge oats is a complex one.
Oat crops are checked for their water content and weight, and are then treated to kill off bugs.
If they are good enough to be used, they go through a complicated process of kilning, which stabilises the crop so it can be shelled and flaked.
A quality that farmers are finally able to produce despite a wet start to the year.
