What The Field?! Episode 3: Myths and truths of the agrofood industry

We talk to  the legendary Guy Singh-Watson, farmer and founder of Riverford Organic Farmers. With his help, we tackle some of the most controversial topics in our industry:

  • What does “local” even mean and is shopping locally really always better?
  • Is plastic truly so bad?
  • Are pesticides and herbicides the great evil of agriculture?
  • What alternatives are there on a social level when running an agribusiness?


Starting off with Guy’s own story and how Riverford came to be, this episode is a multi-faceted one that doesn’t claim to give answers to complex issues but definitely gives us some worthy angles to consider.
