Five Penny Farm, Dorset
Chair person, Campaigns Coordinator and member of the Coordinating Committee, European Coordination Via Campesina
Dorset smallholder farmer on our 20 acre low impact holding with Jersey cows, goats, pigs, vegetables and apple juice, cider cheese, and other processed products. I am also a caterer, butcher, and land rights activist (mostly helping people gain planning permission).
I am a campaigns coordinator currently working on a campaign to influence DEFRA to adopt more policies to promote food sovereignty. I would love to hear ideas from any of the membership about what campaigns we should be working on through the LWA. I am also a member of the coordinating committee of the European Coordination of La Via Campesina and work to represent small-scale producers around Europe in the European and Global agricultural institutions.
