Flavian Obiero is a Hampshire County Farms tenant at Tynefield Farm in Titchfield. He manages 61 acres of permanent pasture & woodland with his partner Nikki. They have Tamworth pigs, ex dairy goats & a mixed breed sheep flock. All the animals are destined for meat. They currently sell through their catering business & a few markets. Future plans include selling to more local places & also setting up a butchery facility on farm.
What changes do you want to see from the food industry in the transition to a sustainable system for nature, health and climate?
"Actions speak louder than words. There's a lot of talk out there about supporting farmers, but without genuine backing, it's just noise. It all boils down to integrity and values."
What inspired you to agree to be part of our Farmer’s Advisory Board?
"If farmers struggle with their mental well-being and health, how can they care for the environment we all depend on? The supply chain requires attention and resolution on restructuring the cost of production. Addressing these issues is crucial because farmers cannot sustainably continue operating at a loss."
