The television presenter and farmer, Adam Henson, has been invited by the Essex Agricultural Society to come and give them a talk about his work on the evening of 17 March 2010 at Writtle College.

Adam runs Bemborough - a 650 hectare estate growing wheat, spring barley and oilseed rape, with a flock of 350 commercial ewes. Bemborough is also home to one of the country’s leading rare breed tourist enterprises, the Cotswold Farm Park, which attracts over 70,000 visitors during its seven-month season.

Adam’s father, a pioneer of rare breed conservation, set up the Cotswold Farm Park in 1971, which was later to be succeeded by his son Adam.

The evening is to be started with a light supper due to begin at 7.30pm. Adam Henson will be speaking in the Northumberland Theatre on the Lordship Road Campus, to approximately 200 guests, largely consisting of members of the Essex Agricultural Society, their partners and friends.
