FARM HEREFORDSHIRE

ABOUT US

The Farm Herefordshire partnership is composed of eleven organisations
overseen by an elected Chair and a Co-ordinator. 

Steve Klenk

Joint Chairman

Steve has worked as farm manager for a large estate of 1100acres in north Herefordshire. He has a long history of integrating trial work into the estate.  This includes a shared AD plant enterprise exploring phosphate stripping technology; hosting one of the ADAS MOPS trials to identify methods for reducing soil erosion risk from potatoes; demonstrating best practice as a stewardship and cover crop mix demonstration site for Kings Crops. He’s hosted many walks and on-farm events for Farm Herefordshire covering a wide range of topics including cover crops, reducing cultivations, companion cropping and managing stewardship options.

Martin Williams

Joint Chairman

Martin Farms 800 ha arable crops on the River Wye at Fownhope. As an AHDB Monitor Farm for Herefordshire for 3 years, he’s helped to develop a strong knowledge transfer network between arable farms in the county. Martin has put a huge amount of time into highlighting the phosphate issue in the Wye and is very passionate about finding solutions to reduce the agricultural contributions. He has delivered several Farm Herefordshire events focusing on the challenges faced in the county and has hosted a ministerial visit for Rebecca Pow raising the issue yet further up the national political agenda.
