I’m a farmer at heart

Short food supply chain is one possibility for the future of farming, and the future needs talented young ambassadors

"I used to work on the farm during my school holidays, but I have now worked in fresh produce, including fresh fruit production and plant breeding, for the past six years". [...] "The majority of my work is consultancy, on an international level, which involves a lot of travel. However, I’m a farmer at heart and always use my spare time to work on the farm. My favourite time is harvest as we get to cover the whole farm in a very quick time period and see all of the wildlife."

These words are from Tom Collison, a 23-years-old farmer, partner of our SKIN consortium. Read his passionate interview about his experience as young farmers at the following webiste
