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.
