Having joined the family farm 8 years ago we have increasingly specialised in organic root vegetables, cereals for seed production and forage crops, as well as having a beef herd and outdoor pigs to provide the fertility. We recently won the Norfolk 2015 Grey Partridge award for conservation. We remain very much a mixed farm in a modern agricultural industry that is more geared towards specialist production. Our challenge is to grow the market for UK organic produce through innovation, productivity gains and sustainable farming methods. I see my position on the FGB as a way to address these challenges and harness the knowledge we as farmers possess.
