Date Published: 02/09/2020

The first IAgrM Virtual National Farm Walk will take place on Thursday 1st October 2020 for 60 minutes at 12 noon.

Our host will be Andrew Brown of Fairchilds Lodge, Rutland and he will be joined by Graham Redman of the Andersons Centre on a tour of the farm.

TW Brown and Son is a family partnership covering two generations of the Brown family. They have been farming
in the Welland valley for around three hundred years. The farm is situated in the parishes of Caldecott and
Lyddington in Rutland, about 5 miles north of Corby and three miles south of Uppingham.

Andrew Brown is a Rutland farmer born and bred. He is a past High Sheriff of Rutland. He also sits on the Leicestershire and
Rutland bench as a magistrate. The farm is 60% arable and 40% permanent pasture.

The farm is in a major conservation scheme which has planted pollen and nectar strips and wild birdseed plots as well as
installing a permissive bridleway for local residents and a 3Ha community woodland. The farm has won several local,
regional and national awards for his conservation work whilst maintaining a viable and productive commercial farm. He
hosts school trips and goes into schools to promote British food and farming. He is a former NFU East Midlands Regional.

The event will be held via Zoom with the joining instructions sent nearer the time to attendees.
