About Us

My photo
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.

Best for... Conservation

It was a suprise but very pleasing to open up this weeks Farmers Weekly and be named the 'Best for... Conservation' blog in their feature on social media and the best agricultural bloggers. We have only been writing the blog for 6 months and have really enjoyed the challenge of writing about aspects of our farm that we find interesting. In the last week we have passed the 5000 hit mark. It is always very pleasing (and usually quite suprising) to meet people who enjoy reding the blog and with that in mind I would like to invite anyone who has any questions about farming or any countryside issues that you would like us to write about to send us an email at events@ejbarker.co.uk. I was also pleased to see Farmer Will's blog named the best for photography, this is a blog that we follow and the photos are excellent. PJB
