Andy Cato


Andy Cato is a mixed arable and livestock farmer and co-founder of Wildfarmed. He is the first Englishman to be awarded the Chevalier L’Order Mérite de Agricole – the equivalent of a knighthood for services to agriculture. Andy’s original 100Ha farm in Gascony, where his farming journey began, was recognised as the most innovative farm in France when awarded the prestigious Lauréat National de l’Agro-Ecologie 2020.  Now back on British soil, Andy is on a mission to take what he’s learned and, through the Wildfarmed project , help facilitate change for farmers by creating a consumer led market for food grown in regenerating landscapes. The National Trust recently awarded Andy a 20 year tenure of a 295Ha farm in Oxfordshire.
