Lower Hewood Farm, Dorset

Press and communications officer, Member of the Coordinating Committee, European Coordination Via Campesina

I am farm manager at Lower Hewood Farm, a 45 acre organic farm in West Dorset. We raise sheep and pigs, and run a market garden, selling all our produce to local businesses direct from the farm.

Lower Hewood Farm also provides residencies allowing artists, writers and researchers to develop their practices in the environment of a working farm.  We also organise an ongoing programme of talks, exhibitions and other events in parallel to the farm – including the Food and Farming Film Festival.

I am also a member of the Coordinating Committee of the European Coordination of La Via Campesina and work with Jyoti and colleagues from farmers organisations around Europe to represent small-scale producers in the European and Global agricultural institutions, and to strengthen co-operation and solidarity between farmers and growers.
