Every week on Rock & Roll Farming, Will Evans interviews different farmers and people involved in the agricultural industry, with the aim of showcasing some of the incredible characters and the interesting things they are doing.
This week Will heads down to Overbury Farms on the Worcestershire/Gloucestershire border to talk to farm manager Jake Freestone (@No1FarmerJake).
We hear about the 1600ha mixed farm he manages, that’s been in the same family since 1722, and the wide range of soil types, conditions, crops, and enterprises they have going on there.
The boys discuss Jake’s non-farming background, and how he caught the bug initially helping out on his Godfather’s dairy farm in Bedfordshire, and how from then on he wasn’t going to do anything else but farm.
