Celebrate #AfternoonTeaWeek this week! The perfect excuse to catch-up with loved ones over a nice cup of Rosy Lee, builders, or milk – with two – however you like your tea there’s nothing more English than a good brew.

Why not treat yourself to a stylish cup of Earl Grey or Lapsang Souchong in luxury, at one of many venues across the UK who are paying tribute to the nation’s favourite pastime, with an array of exciting offers and events. Or simply relax outdoors – fill a flask of tea, pack a basket of sweet treats, and enjoy an afternoon tea sunbathing by the river, in a park, visiting your favourite outdoor place or space. Alternatively, if you’re inspired to host your own tea at home, then celebrate in your garden (or in your pasture or paddock if you’re fortunate enough to own a smallholding). Whether its Mad Hatter style, tea with a chocolate twist, or a more refined à la Jane Austen, have your finest china out (or failing that your favourite mug), and your little finger crooked at the ready…

And don’t forget! For a healthy, tip-top, afternoon-tea-perfect lawn or pasture, you’ll want to mow your grass little and often. Aim to chop off a third of the grass length every time. Farm Tech Supplies stock a range of mowers for cutting short grass, overgrown weeds, large fields, sloping verges, level lawns and uneven land; see below for some of our featured products. And when you’ve finished celebrating #AfternoonTeaWeek, pop your used tea leaves and coffee grounds on top of the compost heap.

Featured Products:

A Topper Mower will chop off the top layer of grasses and weeds back to a more manageable length, leaving a rough cut and rows of long grass cuttings. Easy to maintain and economically priced, our Fleming Topper Mower is a good choice here.

A Finishing Mower is ideal if you’re only looking for a closer-cut and polished lawn finish. With three rotating blades designed for even/level areas of grass that are frequently maintained. One option, and currently at a sale price is our Agrint EA120 Finishing Mower.

A mower with more versatility is the increasingly popular Flail Mower. A good all-round mower which successfully tops a meadow, slices through tough woody brambles, and with regular use is great on short grass leaving a polished lawn finish. There are a few options here, including a Mistral Top Italian Offset Flail Mower with its lightweight construction specifically designed for lower horsepower sub-compact tractors. The narrower width models are also ideal for cutting between trees in orchards and vineyards.

If you don’t have a compact tractor then our ATV flail mower G-AFL120 is a great choice, with its own Loncin engine so it can simply be towed behind a 4×4 vehicle or quad bike!
