Farmer and Grower Board Chair
I farm 97h/a in conjunction with my wife Janet and son Stuart. The farm is principally Dairy consisting of 100 milking cows supplying milk to Rachel's Dairy in Aberystwyth. Milk is used for the manufacture of yogurts. The cows are a mixture of traditional breeds being British friesian, dairy shorthorns and Ayrshires.
The farm is in rotation principally stubble turnips, wheat, whole top, red/white clover grass ley.
Last year saw my son Stuart become head of holding following successful completion of his MSC in organic agriculture. Whilst I now focus on young stock management.
In addition to chairing the organic farmers and growers board I also act as a farmer member of the Agricultural Land Tribunal.
