Chief Innoculator, Thriplow Farms
David Walston grew up in a farming family in Cambridgeshire. David studies biology at university and worked as a photographer and magazine editor for six years before finding himself back on the farm in 2009.
Thriplow Farm is a predominantly arable farm, growing wheat, rapeseed, peas, beans and sugar beet on an area of about 800 ha just south of Cambridge. It also has a small herd of Wagyu cattle that started from scratch using imported frozen embryos. Thriplow Farm tries to actively regenerate the quality and productivity of its soils through techniques like no-till, companion cropping, bi-cropping and mob grazing.
