Joe Stanley is a farmer, conservationist and writer and a passionate ambassador for sustainability and high standards in food and farming. Joe is often to be seen in the farming and national press advocating for positive change in our food system and explaining the realities of modern agriculture to wider society. He holds an honours degree in history from Durham University and a Graduate Diploma in Agriculture from the Royal Agricultural University, Cirencester. In 2020, he was honoured with the National Farmers Union’s Meurig Raymond Award for farming advocacy. Joe is rarely to be found more than ten feet away from his trusty Jack Russell terriers, Ted & Toby (to whom he owes any small success).
