New chair at Linking Environment And Farming (LEAF)

The new chair is Philip Wyn, manager of the Nevile Estate in Lincolnshire - one of LEAF’s first Demonstration Farms. He will take over from Stephen Fell who has held the post for the past eight years.

Philip Wyn has spent 40 years managing and advising businesses in nearly every sector of the agriculture industry. He says he feels “very privileged to take over as Chairman of LEAF at a time when it has such an important role to play in championing sustainable food and farming.”

LEAF recently merged with FACE (Farming and Countryside Education) and Philip Wyn plans to scale up LEAF’s education and public engagement activities.
