Adam Henson meets engineer-turned-farmer Tamara Hall at Molescroft Hall in Beverley to find out about her passion for wetlands as part of commercial farming.
Convalescing at home on the family farm after a riding accident, Tamara discovered that she could use her engineering background to good effect there. She tells Adam Henson that the farm, which had previously been run on 'traditional' lines, is now diversifying into land stewardship programmes, in close partnership with the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust.
After attending some suitable courses and a period of on-the-job training, Tamara is now transforming the 1,000-acre enterprise to include wetlands and a school classroom, and developing new innovations in crop rotations.
