Farmers Guardian podcast: New entrant starts successful business after visiting Open Farm Sunday

Having met Emma Loder-Symonds at her Open Farm Sunday event at Nonington Farms in Canterbury, youngster Jack Scott finally knew what career path he wanted to take: Farming. 

Having secured some of Emma's land, he now runs a thriving vegetable business and works with Emma to build his brand up. 

Emma, a former British Farming Awards winner and teacher, is passionate about education - Nonington is well-known for its educational classes and on-farm experiences. 

Jack has thrived in his journey so far, and won BBC Countryfile's Young Countryside Champion award at the end of 2023.
