      CRPR Distinguished Lecture Series: Adam Henson

      CRPR Distinguished Lecture Series Adam Henson: My Life on the Land – Past, Present and Future Date: Wednesday 9 October 2019 Time: 17.30-19.00 Venue: Henderson Lecture Theatre, XFi Building, University of Exeter, Exeter, EX4 4ST Video link: Lecture Theatre 1, Peter Lanyon Building, Penryn Campus, TR10 9FE Event Information: Farmer, author and rural television presenter Adam Henson will talk about his life’s work with rare breeds – the topic of his latest book A Breed Apart – and his career in farming and media. Biography We are delighted that Adam Henson will be delivering the inaugural lecture in the CRPR lecture series, which has been designed to raise the profile of farming and food in the South-West. Born into a farming family, Adam gained experience with animals and farming from an early age. Adam achieved a HND in Agriculture at Seale-Hayne Agricultural College in Devon, where he met his business partner Duncan Andrews. Having succeeded to the tenancy of Bemborough Farm from his father, Adam now runs the 650-hectare farm business with Duncan Andrews, growing wheat, spring barley and oilseed rape, alongside a flock of 350 commercial ewes. They also run the Cotswold Farm Park which pioneers rare breed conservation. Set up in 1971 by Adam’s father, this award-winning tourist attraction now welcomes over 150,000 visitors a year. Adam started in television in 2001 when he was chosen, from 3,500 applicants, to be a presenter for BBC Countryfile, and has since put his farming knowledge to good use, broadcasting on a wide range of programmes for both radio and TV. This free public event will be followed by a Q&A session with Adam Henson and refreshments. We anticipate high demand for this event – please book early to avoid disappointment.
