John farms with his brother on a 100ha mixed farm at Little Bytham, near Stamford in Lincolnshire.  He grows organic Marrowfat peas for Hodmedod as well as specialist wheats for local mills and bakeries in Nottingham and London. He has both campaigned for, and practices a process of, “Transition Farming”; breaking down the journey towards longer-term objectives of sustainable land and resource use into achievable, low-risk steps. He was a founding member of, and has helped to develop the Production Standards for, the Pasture-Fed Livestock Association.
