A fun event for children to find out more about farming in Devon and learn where their food comes from first hand, where they can touch, feel and even smell how farms work!

Organisation and support

The event organisation is being facilitated by a small team of staff from Devon County Council the main individuals involved in the organisation of the event are:

Jon Williams (Event Organiser)

Jon is pleased to be involved in Farm Wise Devon and has a strong personal desire to ensure that the DCC farm estate and Devon schools form close working links with each other.  Before joining DCC he worked in agriculture as an arable and business consultant for 10 years and has maintained a strong interest in agriculture since joining DCC in 1999.  Jon was closely involved in the DCC farms review in 2010 and one of the aims for the estate following the review was to generate ‘educational benefit’ from the farm estate and we fully hope that Farm Wise Devon will help to demonstrate this is possible.

 

John LeeJohn Lee (Chairman of Farm Wise Devon)

John has performed a wide range of roles within the agricultural industry both in Devon, Nationally and Europe.  John is a passionate advocate for the education of children and their having opportunities to learn more about farming and its importance.  We have been very fortunate to have John as our chairman and John has been influential in ensuring that Farm Wise Devon was bought to life.
