Tom Pearson started running the family farm in West Cambridgeshire 6 years ago. He has been moving blocks of the farm into a regenerative agriculture system since then, learning what does and doesn’t work on the heavy Hanslope series clay soils. He is embracing the changes that the industry is facing, laying the groundwork for net zero and significant biodiversity gains. He has a background in public health and is keen to explore the contribution that regenerative agriculture could offer through local food networks, reconnecting people to food production and the potential nutritional benefits this has to offer. Two years ago, he took on the role of lead farmer in the West Cambridgeshire Hundreds farm cluster.
