About Adam Henson
Adam Henson is one of the UK’s best known farmers and a presenter on BBC1's Countryfile. He appears in Countryfile’s regular feature, Adam’s Farm, where he reports from his own farm on the topical, practical challenges he faces. Judges have praised his skilful explanation of a diversity of farming business issues and the empathy he expressed when commentating on the tougher aspects of farming life. They have also praised Adam’s tireless efforts for farming.
Adam Henson has won the 2010 Farmers Weekly Champion of the Year Award sponsored by the National Farmers Union. He has travelled across the country as an ambassador for British farming attending almost all of the major farming and countryside events to chair meetings or promote the farming industry to the public. Drawing on a wealth of farming knowledge, Adam has presented weekly for Radio Gloucestershire and is a regular contributor to BBC Radio 4’s On Your Farm and Farming Today. He also writes for the monthly Countryfile magazine in his capacity as resident farmer. Adam also co-presents BBC2’s Lambing Live alongside Kate Humble.
Adam’s Cotswold Farm Park pioneers rare breed conservation and is part of the 650-hectare Bemborough Farm. This has given him an in-depth knowledge of British farming, and led to his expertise as a popular presenter and guest speaker.
