Andrew Williamson

NFU Combinable Crops Board member

Andrew farms near Bridgnorth in south Shropshire, where he is the managing partner of the family farming partnership. He returned home to join the partnership in 1999 after completing an honours degree in chemistry at the University of Bristol and working on farms in Australia, New Zealand and the USA.

He farms 900 acres of combinable crops, wheat, oilseed rape, oats, barley and beans.

Alongside this, he lets out some permanent pasture for sheep grazing and all the land he manages is covered by a HLS scheme. The business uses precision farming techniques extensively and is beginning the journey into conservation agriculture.

Andrew is also involved in a joint venture machinery sharing agreement with a neighbouring farmer.
