This week I've got another cheeky bonus for you as we chat about a subject matter that I believe we all need to be paying attention to, regenerative farming. It's certainly a subject that I've found myself drawn to over the last couple of years.
I got some time with Farmer Tom Morphew, CEO of Full Circle Farms (https://www.fullcirclefarms.co.uk/) & The Garden Army (https://www.garden-army.com/) in Sussex and this chat does not disappoint. You might be thinking, why are you talking to a farmer, Phil? What's that got to do with Hospitality? Well, in my view, it has everything to do with hospitality and you'll definitely hear that in our chat.
We get through:-
- Fighting the good fight
- The outdoors
- The naked Gardener
- Food waste
- Battling through stress
- The First Land
- Flushing out crooks
- Building a farm
- The Garden Army
- Never give up, never give in
- Partnering with Sodexo
- Farming - The hard truths
Tom's story is epic and he has not half had to crawl through the dung to get to where he is now, some of this may even be tough listening. But the other side of this Tom's story is all impressively inspirational and hopeful and and an insight into what can be done when you keep pushing forward.
