Prize Quiz to WIN £75 Worth of Farm Shop and Market Vouchers – CLOSED

Congratulations to Barbara in Thatcham for winning our quiz to receive vouchers totalling £75:

  • £25 voucher for Cobbs Farm Shop near Hungerford;
  • £25 voucher for any Honesty Coffee Shop including Saddleback Farm Shop near Brightwalton;
  • £25 voucher for Karen and Neil Millar-Ward’s fruit and veg market stall at Hungerford (every Wed), Thatcham (every Fri) and Marlborough (every Sat).

The Quiz – Answers Below

We all rely on farmers and the food they grow. A number of people and organisations help them (there are also others whom farmers might say hinder them, but let’s pass over that point). One such type of person is the subject of this prize quiz.

All you need to do is to answer the questions below, then arrange the initial letters of the answers to form the ten-letter name of the type of advisor that farmers rely on to help decide which crops to grow and how to look after them.

  1. Main ingredient of silage and hay. Grass
  2. Do Quakers prefer this cereal? Oats
  3. Imperial land measure. Acre
  4. This type of plough can manage without lands. Reversible
  5. You need these to get outputs. Inputs
  6. Key crop nutrient. Nitrogen
  7. Type of cattle herd where cows and calves stay together. Suckler
  8. Is this grass somewhat nervous? Twitch
  9. Where hops lose most of their moisture. Oast
  10. Silage crop sometimes cut to create puzzles. Maize

Thanks to farming journalist and PP reader Andrew Blake for contributing this quiz.
