Andrew grew up on his Grandparents mixed Dairy, Beef and Arable farm in Cornwall and, despite his best effort, he couldn’t escape agriculture as a profession. After working for a variety of farming enterprises and fulfilling almost every position available, from General Farm Worker to Estates Manger, Andrew is now the joint owner and Director of Agriton and Agro-Vital, based in the South West. Both companies manufacture, source and supply a range of products that promote commercially and environmentally sustainable farming practices.
More recently, Andrew has been awarded a Nuffield Farming Scholarship looking into the different management techniques for Organic Manures and how farmers can best utilise this undervalued resource.
