Tonight I’m heading down to Rednal, just south of Birmingham, to talk to farmer and National Farmer’s Union Dairy Board Chairman, Michael Oakes @m19mao.
We talk about how his dad started farming on a county council smallholding, farming on the urban fringe, his regrets about not spending more time with his children when they were young, Open Farm Sunday, Farmers For Action, and how he got involved in the NFU, and his experiences since.
All this, and much, much more.
Check it out folks..
LONDON MARATHON 2019: As required by universal law, much like if you’re a vegan, if you’re doing a marathon you have to tell people about it. Well I’m doing the London one in April 2019, and I’m raising money for the incredible charity FARM AFRICA.
Between 8 February and 8 May donations in support of my London Marathon challenge will go to Farm Africa’s Coffee is Life appeal. Give before 8 May 2019 and all public donations to Farm Africa’s Coffee is Life appeal will be doubled by the UK government.
Your donation will support Farm Africa projects across eastern Africa, and the matched funding you unlock from the UK government will directly fund a Farm Africa project that will give women in Kanungu in western Uganda the opportunity to make a decent living from coffee farming.
If you want to see more about the AMAZING work they do please visit www.farmafrica.org & if you’d like to sponsor me the link is www.justgiving.com/fundraising/william-evans12 and from now until 8th May, the UK Government will match your donation – thank you!
