Our Interview with Joel and his son Daniel

As part of the 'Growing the Growers' documentary we had scheduled an interview with Joel and his son Daniel. It was conducted at the kitchen table after a delicious lunch provided by Teresa.

What an interesting discussion we had. Daniel is one of the few people that we know that can silence his effusive and eloquent father. We talked about farm management, balancing innovation and new ideas with day to day practicalities, the role of apprentices and succession.

After what was a most interesting and stimulating discussion Joel stood up and announced 'well nobody else has footage like that!' Keep in touch because we are sure you will not want to miss seeing the video when it is finally edited and published.
