About me

I’m a UK-based journalist specialising in rural issues, food and farming.

My words of wisdom have appeared in print and online – and on TV and radio – both in the UK and overseas.

I’m currently chief reporter for Farmers Weekly magazine, a publication I’ve worked for regularly since 1997. Other publications I’ve written for include:

Sunday Telegraph, London Evening Standard, House of Commons magazine, Rural Focus, Country Living, Countryside magazine, Crops, Caterer & Hotelkeeper, Green Futures, Lincolnshire Echo, Personnel Today, Poultry World,  Prague Post (Czech Republic), Lidové Noviny (Czech Republic), La France Agricole (France) and Business Week (USA).

I’ve also appeared as a pundit on Sky News, BBC Radio 4, BBC Five Live and UK local radio.
