‘Meet the Farmers’ – episode 17 – Stephen Briggs at Whitehall Farm (featuring the Woodland Trust)

Stephen Briggs farms arable crops and apple trees using agroforestry techniques in Cambridgeshire. He is a tenant farmer on 250 acres of land in the fertile fens and also runs a consultancy, Abacus Agriculture, providing targeted advice to farmers and land managers across the UK. This podcast episode also profiles an event which took place at Stephen’s farm while I was there. Organised by the Woodland Trust the event brought farmers, landowners and advisors together to discuss the Defra Command paper on the future of food and farming.
