About This Show
Farmerama Radio: a monthly podcast sharing the voices of smaller scale farmers in the UK and beyond.
At Farmerama we are committed to positive ecological futures for the planet and believe that the farmers and growers of the world will determine this. So we make a monthly podcast which gives producers a voice and shares ideas in a fun and informative way – that way farmers can learn from other farmers. We want to rejuvenate the respect, confidence and vibrancy of smaller-scale farmers and rural communities. Plus, everyone can learn about the multitude of decisions producers make and how this affects all of our lives. It’s about the food we eat but also our health, flooding, animals, carbon storage, biodiversity and more.

This month we weave in and out of a conversation we had with Dame Fiona Reynolds, former Director-General of the National Trust. Her recent book The Fight for Beauty is a call to arms for all of us to pay more attention to matters of the earth and oceans. We caught up with Fiona and she told us how she sees farming fits into the future of a Britain built on beauty.
Beauty may seem a little airy-fairy and disconnected from the realities of running a farming business. But please do hear us out to the end…this is about bringing power back to the people.
As Fiona discusses beauty and rewilding we hear from upland organic sheep farmer, Martin Peck, asking his long-time neighbour and fellow upland sheep farmer, Rees Roberts, for some of his thoughts on these topics. This is a voice that is not heard enough as we discuss the future of our landscapes. We also hear from spiritual ecologist and artist behind The Milking Parlour, Nessie Reid for a completely different perspective on beauty and being.
