On the 17th March Gepps & Sons were delighted to sponsor 'An Evening with Adam Henson', the BBC 'Country File' and 'Lambing Live' presenter. The event was hosted by the Essex Agricultural Society at Writtle College and involved a fascinating presentation by Adam who talked extensively about his life both as a rare breeds farmer in the Cotswolds and as a BBC presenter. There were numerous questions from the audience. In particular there was great interest in the practical problems of running a diversified farm park open to members of the public. Adam also spoke openly about the challenges faced by him and other livestock farmers during the foot and mouth crisis. The evening was a great success and everyone left with some very interesting thoughts on the future of farming in Britain.
