Podcast: Farmstock Futures Episode 1

Harrison & Hetherington and H&H Group led an innovative research programme which engaged figures under 40 from across the agricultural industry to voice their views on the future of farming.

In episode 1 of our Farmstock Futures series, The Family Business Network’s Co-Directors Sue Howorth and Dave Clarkson chat to two of the individual champions from the project about aspects of working within agriculture which are close to their hearts.

Harry Huddart, works as Farm Manager for Beeswax Dyson Farming in Lincolnshire, farming his own block of land and being responsible for the livestock enterprises of beef finishing and sheep.  Richard Walker, married with a young family, is self employed working as a Contract Shepherd and Farm Relief in the Dales and North Yorkshire.

They chat today about the importance of networking and communicating with each other, mental health and the lack of social interaction during these unprecedented times, raising awareness of the wide scope of jobs available within the industry and just how the Farmstock Futures programme is providing them all with a voice to air change and influence the agricultural industry sector going forward.
