South West Cumbrian mixed farmer, Will Case joins us for the next episode of 'An Audience With...' on Wednesday 28th April at the later time of 7-8pm.
Will comes from a 400-year long farming history and sees himself as a 'proud custodian of the countryside'. Working alongside his brother and parents over recent years, they have focused on diversifying into dairy and free-range hens alongside their livestock trade, ultimately allowing the family to split the business into two viable farms which he and his brother now run separately.
Over the years they have created a hugely diverse farming business by ensuring each enterprise stacks up individually, so we’ll be asking exactly how they've done it.
How, the families move into free-range hens became the most profitable part of the farm; and all about his sheep enterprises, including his Cumbrian Salt Marsh Lambs that he rears for Booths and other quality butchers and how he adds further value to his business with pedigree breeding Texels and shearling ram sales.
Once again, Andrew Robinson, our Head of Agriculture will be hosting this online event and chatting with NFU ambassador Will about how the family have really made the best of what they have and in turn safeguarded the wider family’s livelihood for future generations.
We'd encourage you to submit any questions in advance that you would like to ask Will or any one of our Agri team and we will do our best to answer them during the course of the event.
