Daffodils picked for local Edgmond community

Farm Manager Scott Kirby's role in running the university farm is always essential, but especially at this difficult time, to ensure the continued health of our many farm animals and crops.

The Harper Adams campus may be shut to most, but it's still his and his family's home.

Thousands of daffodils are growing on campus following an engineering project aimed at creating machinery to plant and harvest them in upland farms with the ulitmate aim to produce more galantamine which is a pharmaceutical product that's an approved Alzheimer’s disease treatment.

Scott's children have kindly been out harvesting the daffodils associated with the project so that they can be given to local residents by the helpful volunteers who are collecting their prescriptions and food. They are available to collect from outside the village shop.
