Follow Farmer Tom around his farm to see what he grows for us to eat – barley for beer and Maltesers, beans for food and animal feed, linseed for bead-making, oats for cereals and horse feed, peas for human and animal consumption, and wheat for bread-making.

About Tom

After working in various jobs from magazines to film media, Tom returned to the family farm in May 2015 and has built up a popular social media presence – Farmer Tom – aiming to ‘show people what happens on the other side of the farm gate’.  You can talk to Tom live with ‘FaceTime a Farmer’, which links farmers and schools for fortnightly Skype calls.
