Meet the Farmers is a podcast series which aims to highlight the realities of running a farm in the UK. There are no limits when it comes to size or type of farming – I intend to visit all kinds of farms. The episodes each profile a different farm, looking at the enterprises and interviewing the people who work on them.It’s about highlighting the realities of farming life, the good times and the bad, as well as farmers’ hopes and fears for the future.
If you are a farmer and are interested in being featured in an episode, please
get in touch!
I am really pleased and honoured that
