Arable Chat is back with a brand-new episode which sees two inspirational arable farmers talking about sustainability and the future.
In light of the COP26 conference this month Matt Waldie, fourth generation farmer and manager of Gilston Mains in Fife, Scotland talks about growing oats for Quaker Oats, and the importance of LEAF Marque accreditation.
Our second guest is Tom Martin, or as you may know him Farmer Tom. Tom discusses how he only enter back into the farming industry in the last 6 years after his career as business consultant and having worked at Universal Pictures. His now established initiative, Farmer Time, brings farmers and schools together to share knowledge with children about the farming industry including the origins of their food and hopefully encouraging them to pursue a career in farming.
