Richard Jones has been involved in farming all his life. He took on his father’s farm from a young age and had to teach himself how to run a successful farming business. Now, he’s on a mission to inspire the next generation into careers in the world of farming, food and drink. Teaming up with Sarah Mackenzie, they formed the Award-Winning Farmer Jones Academy which now has a team of no less than 10 enthusiatic members who deliver our many courses in Food and Drink to a number of clients.
