About James and Jen - JB Farming Life

James is a farmer originally from Yorkshire and Jen is a Lincolnshire girl that juggles a full-time job with life on the farm together. We live together in Lincolnshire, Great Britain on an all-arable farm growing combinable crops (wheat, oil seed rape, beans, oats and we've tried a bit of soya this year). James is farming full-time and mostly alone, while Jen helps where she can! We started making videos to talk/share the thing we love most - farming. The industry has a tough time in the UK and we face a lot of challenges people don't even realise, but it's a way of life that we enjoy!
