About Us

Cousins working together on our family owned farm with the aim of running a commercial modern farm producing high yielding, high standard crops while maximising wildlife diversity. Brian is said to be the farmer and conservationist, whereas Patrick is a conservationist and farmer. This mix has given a new direction for the farm, building upon the work that our fathers and grandfather has done to improve the overall success of the farm business. The farm has gone from strength to strength with the farm being recognised at a national level winning the coveted National FWAG’s Silver Lapwing Award for farming and conservation in 2009 and then Patrick and Brian were named Countryside Farmer of the Year by the Farmers Weekly in 2010.

Oxford Farming Conference 3rd-6th Jan

Patrick and I are very grateful to Andy Ormiston of FWAG who has kindly arranged two sponsored tickets to this year’s Oxford Farming Conference. This event is the most prestigious farming conference in the calendar and we are very lucky to have been offered these tickets. We will listen to some very high profile speakers such as Rt Hon Caroline Spelman MP from the industry, over a range of topics such as Food security, Environmental Protection, Water Scarcity, a Forecast Population of 9bn- Realistic? Manageable? Sustainable? 

It will be a very long few days as the morning sessions start at 8.45am and we don’t finish until 7.30pm, so hopefully coffee will be on tap!! We will keep you informed about the industry chit chat from the conference on our return.                   BWB
