Food and Farming Awards: Finalist Neil Darwent

Listen in pop-out player

Neil Darwent is the third finalist vying for the title of 'Outstanding Farmer of the Year' in this year's BBC Food and Farming Awards. He gives judges Adam Henson and Mike Gooding a tour of the dairy farm he manages in Somerset and shares his passion for pasture.

The three farmers take a stroll around the fields, sheds and milking parlour and discuss Neil's determination to promote the value of grass-fed milk. He explains why he believes cows have a right to graze on fresh pasture, and why farmers who produce milk according to traditional methods should be rewarded. So is that a rose-tinted, old-fashioned approach to dairying or is Neil onto something new and progressive?

Presented by Adam Henson. Produced by Anna Jones.
