Following Beanstalk Global interviewing Tom at the recently held National Fruit Show in Kent, we have had several requests for us to conduct a further interview with Tom. This is so we can gain his further reaction and views as to what he is seeing in the agricultural and fresh produce sectors from his own and a NFU perspective.
Tom farms in partnership with his wife, Emily, and his parents in North Essex. Alongside a small owned farm they run a larger contract farming business growing a range of combinable crops across 950 hectares in North East Essex. The home farm is based around arable production but has also diversified into equestrian and renewables.
Tom has represented the NFU from Local Branch Chairman through to Chair of the National Combinable Crops Board.
