AGA Open Day at Cobrey Farm

Whilst photographing John Chinn's television interview the evening before, John invited me to come along and photograph the Asparagus Growers Association Agronomy Open Day, which was to be hosted at the farm on Thursday, 14th April.

Due to crossed wires back at Ross Gazette HQ, this, rather amusingly resulted in both myself and Ian Walker turning up to photograph the same event. 'Don't see a Ross Gazette photographer for ages and then two plus a reporter (Jo) turn up at once!' What Ian doesn't know is that, before I went, I decided I wouldn't need to wear a jumper, so took it off. When I got there, Ian was wearing exactly the same one. It would have looked like Ross Gazette uniform, had I not removed mine.

I have to be quite frank here and say that I do not know much about asparagus growing, even after the guided tour as I was too busy photographing to listen to the guide. (Ian and I shared the photography job.) The food on the other hand was fantastic. I had only ever tasted asparagus as soup before but I discovered that asparagus and bacon rolls are also really tasty!

The photographs are.

We all had to wear the suit and hair net during the packing plant tour, for reasons of hygiene.
