After last month’s words from farmers around the world, we are now back on British soil with stories from Perthshire to Devon.
We start on the West Coast, with Patrick Holden from the Sustainable Food Trust, learning about making the most of the by-products from dairy farming, and the positive effect that transparent pricing could have on farmers.
We hear about a great little trick for soil testing on the cheap from Tom Powell of Field of Wheat. Then, Carolyn from the @FoodAssembly is at Babbinswood Farm in Shropshire, finding out about some of the ups and downs of WWOOFing.
Finally, we get a collection of dispatches from the first Scottish Farmhack – an experience that had many people excited to share ideas and co-create tools – from Abi G of @futurefarmlab and Keesje of @burmieston
