This week’s Meet the Farmers podcast features Kit Papworth, who sadly lost his father, David, last year to suicide. We talk a good deal about #FarmerMentalHealth in the light of this, and also chat about sugar beet, grain storage, and buying group Anglia Farmers, of which Kit is a former chair.

Kit farms in Norfolk, eastern England, alongside his cousin Tim, growing cereals as well as a large amount of seed, oil seed rape, potatoes, sugar beet and vining peas on sandy loam soils.

He also manages countryside stewardship land and contract farms on behalf of a large number of different landowners.
