Take a look back at how things were done fifty years ago, compared to today, with beautiful archive footage of Farmer Charles’ family farm in the 1970s.
About Charles and his farm
Charles is a mixed dairy, beef, and arable farmer, working in partnership with his father and two brothers in Warwickshire. They milk 350 Holstein cows, using both conventional and robotic systems. They grow wheat, barley, oilseed rape, oats, potatoes, and maize over 1300 acres, as well as having diversified into industrial units.
Charles is married to Linda, a primary school teacher, and they have two children, Chloe and Henry. He has a real passion for education and helping people gain a better understanding of the food they eat and how it is produced.
