Rachel Hallos

Rachel Hallos

NFU Vice President

Rachel is an upland farmer. She works in partnership with her husband and children on a Yorkshire Water tenanted farm in the South Pennines.

In the last 20 years the farm has evolved from a milk producer/retailer unit, to a farm that focusses on their beef herd, hill sheep and environmental outcomes. They have also diversified with a holiday let and contracting business.

The business has grown through their ability to change and also by collaborating with their landlord on water management, heather regeneration and hay meadow restoration. Rachel takes an honest approach and has an open mind-set. 

Rachel was elected to the position of NFU Vice President in February 2024.
