Dear Fellow Landowners,

Here’s the latest from a detecting forum: “Some want to see everything & take their pick of the goodies, others just aren’t interested and are happy for you to take everything.”

Seriously? Are we farmers so uncultured that we don’t care or so rich we don’t mind giving a scruff the complete run of our wallets?

I, for one, don’t believe it.
