I write this on Father’s Day as i reflect on life and the last 15 years of having children, it makes you realise how important family and friends are to ones happiness and wellbeing.  It has been a journey of discovery over the years and such a fulfilling experience, I know I am far from a perfect parent, but I have a core understanding of how my state will directly influence my children. As a family we have our routine, our daily meal around the kitchen table, sharing and talking about the things that have made the day special.

On a personal note I have become more and more fascinated with the links to ones health and well being through various practices that are not new to the world but new to me if you like and obviously not something the children are used to as I sit there in meditation and various breath work techniques.

Over the last 2 decades we have been working hard on the farm to nurture crops, protect them from pests and disease and build soil health and having done that I can see directly how the health of the soil is intrinsically linked to the health of the food and health of us humans as we strive to live longer and healthier.

We have just launched the 2nd year of our event called Fire in your Soul where we hope to ignite many more incredible conversations about our personal connection to our food system and what challenges and hopes for the future of sustainable food and farms holds. There will also be a well being area for people to enjoy and learn and take part in immersive workshops. Get your tickets here.

Tomorrow this week I stupidly said yes to a Wing Walk in support to our legend Farmer Mike “The Monk”, we are raising money for charity Aerobility and Teenage Cancer Trust. If you are able to support us then please click here.

I recently went to an event in the Valley – the Dung Beetle Conference 2024. Who would have thought the mighty beetle would be so integral to bringing together farmers, vets, soil experts, entomologists and researchers and even I made the radio edit!  An excellent event and great to see the amazing work going on not only under the ground but also towards shaping the future policy and regulations.
