Speaking to Harry Metcalfe about a career in farming and cars
Will chats to Harry Metcalfe, a farmer in the Cotswolds who is also a successful motoring journalist having founded Evo Magazine. They talk about Harry’s early farming education and agricultural career, getting into cars and how he’s now using his skills in creating videos to try and help explain to a wider audience what happens on his farm day-to-day.
Never mind the bondage trousers
In one of my favourite interviews so far, John Pawsey talks about his journey into farming, his love of punk music, the Hare that convinced him to change to organic production, and why it's so important that we preserve the heritage of WW2 Airfields.
All this, and much more. What else could you ask for from a farming podcast? ;-)
From Wales to Waikato
It's a long way from Capel Garmon in North Wales to Tokoroa in New Zealand!
Marc Lloyd Jones tells us all about his farming journey, how he became an award winning dairy farmer, the people that have helped him along the way, and his ambitions for his and his family's future.
Cheese Chat with The Courtyard Dairy
Everyone loves cheese, right? Tonight I talked to cheesemonger and owner of the multi-award winning Courtyard Dairy in West Yorkshire, Andy Swinscoe, to find out all about his career and business, as well as what working with dairy farmers and being a valued part of the local community means to him.

Understanding and combatting dog attacks on sheep
There’s been a worrying spike in incidents of ‘Livestock Worrying’. To understand this better and talk about what’s being done to combat it Will talks to Rob Taylor from North Wales Police rural crime team, Debs Roberts, a Scottish farmer and co-founder of ‘Ladies who Lamb’ and NFU Mutual farming specialist, David Harrison.
The Running Man
Thought it was about time I interviewed the man, the myth, the legend, Mr. Lincolnshire himself, Charles Anyan!
We talk about the farm that's been in his family for over 200 years, his frankly disappointing lack of dodgy tattoos from his time in Australia, his Great Great Grandfather being a founder member of the National Farmers Union, and how he went from never even owning a pair of trainers to running a sub-4 hour marathon in just 9 months - what a guy.

When you stop learning you stop living
I’ve learned so much more about farming by listening to these podcasts. Will has a great way of conversing with his guests and you can tell they are at ease speaking to him. It’s a great way of learning more about agriculture and the wider industry. Keep it up Will, your work is very much appreciated.
