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.
