Farmer Tom talks to Dr. Chips about all the science involved in farming and taking care of the environment. From genetics to ecology, nutrition to meteorology, there’s a lot of science involved in running a successful farm!
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.
Discover lots of fun activities and videos from farmers in our #LockdownLearning hub.
