Brought up in Southamp­ton, Annabel escaped to the coun­try­side and has over twen­ty years’ expe­ri­ence work­ing in a range of agri­cul­tur­al mar­ket­ing and com­mu­ni­ca­tions roles. The skills, pro­fes­sion­al­ism, sci­ence and tech­nol­o­gy across the sec­tor, pro­vides the inspi­ra­tion and dri­ve to sup­port farm­ers to show­case British farm­ing and to help the pub­lic under­stand and val­ue all that the indus­try deliv­ers. Its her firm belief that every farmer has a fas­ci­nat­ing sto­ry to share and its her mis­sion to sup­port them to achieve this!

As a farmer’s daugh­ter, I have a pro­found love for British Farm­ing and all that it stands for. Liv­ing and work­ing on our fam­i­ly farm in North Northum­ber­land, I’d like to see the pub­lic per­cep­tion towards British Agri­cul­ture move in a more pos­i­tive direc­tion and LEAF Open Farm Sun­day con­tributes great­ly to this shift in atti­tudes and understanding.

I am lucky that both my pro­fes­sion­al role as the Pol­i­cy Ana­lyst in the Sav­ills Rur­al Research team, and my home life on a fam­i­ly-run diver­si­fied farm­ing estate in Sur­rey enable me to pur­sue this mis­sion, and I am thrilled to advance it fur­ther through LEAF Open Farm Sunday.”

Helen and her moth­er hold a num­ber of open farm events through­out the year, the events attract­ a wide range of vis­i­tors, some of whom have been over 30 years old and nev­er been to a farm! This opened the fam­i­ly’s eyes, espe­cial­ly her father’s, as before then he did­n’t believe peo­ple would want to come to, or learn about farms and farm­ing life. Helen is pas­sion­ate about edu­cat­ing the pub­lic and offer­ing the oppor­tu­ni­ty to vis­it a real life work­ing farm, and is more than hap­py to sup­port any­one in their LEAF Open Farm Sun­day journey!
