Diversification with NFU Chair John Pawsey

The Soil Association's brand new podcast, Farm Walks, gives a personal glimpse into farming in the UK. In episode one Ben Raskin, Head of Horticulture at Soil Association, joins NFU chair John Pawsey.

John has a 600 hectare mixed organic farm in Suffolk. In this podcast John talks about the reasons why he introduced sheep to his arable rotation and the benefits he’s seeing.

He also touches on competition with overseas imports in the organic feed market, the Innovative Farmers field labs that he has been involved with – looking at weed control and no-tillage methods and his thoughts on the future of farming.
