I’ve been conscious that Meet the Farmers has been somewhat south and east focused so far, so last week I set off on a road trip to south east Scotland (including the Highland Show), stopping off at farms along the way. On the first day I called by flower grower Matt Naylor’s place in Lincolnshire. Matt’s company grows over 50 million stems of different flowers, selling to Aldi, Waitrose and the Coop. He’s also a Director of the Oxford Farming Conference and a columnist for Farmers Weekly magazine. We spoke about all of this as well as mental health, yoga and more!
I mention in the episode that I am running a half marathon in a couple of month’s time for the charity Mind. If you can spare a few pennies and would like to sponsor me I would greatly appreciate it – you can find my justgiving page here. Thank you!
