DEC 19, 2013: CS writer Adam Willcox, from the Rookies, talked about smallholding on Farming Today on BBC Radio 4 this morning.

What’s the difference between a smallholder and a small farmer? Apparently one is “fluffy and Nancy Pandy” and the other “business focused”! That was the view of a small farmer, but Adam responded, defending smallholders. Good listening. The discussion is 4.55 mins in… Farming Today is focusing on smallholding all week. CS expert, Tim Tyne, talked about the impact on CAP reform on smallholders in Monday’s programme. Another CS writer, Sally Morgan, was visited on her Somerset smallholding for yesterday’s (Wed) programme.
