Talking coastal farming with David Eagle

Talking coastal farming with David Eagle

Today we launch our second Farm Walks podcast!

The series, hosted by Soil Association Head of Horticulture Ben Raskin, is designed to given listeners a unique glimpse in farming in the UK.

In the most recent episode, Ben went to Kirby-le-Soken to visit coastal farmer David Eagle.

Due to its location, Devereux Farm faces a long-term threat from rising sea level. To get around this challenge, David has put himself at the forefront of innovation by pioneering the cultivation of a hardy berry-producing plant called sea buckthorn.

To learn more about life on Devereux Farm and this multi-purpose crop, check out the podcast which is available on iTunes, Soundcloud and Acast.
