A Fen Farmers Wife..
Thu 31st January 2019
Speaker: Judith Jacobs


Judith is from a fourth generation farming family and there was no question that she and her sister and brother would carry on the tradition, Judith studied for an HND in agriculture at Harper Adams University. Her social life from 13 - 25 was centred around her local Young Farmers in Staffordshire, selected for the Finals of Miss Young Farmer 1988. So it was a natural progression with her husband Andrew to become tenant farmers of Moor Farm, Newborough in 1990 and to purchase the farm in 2002.

A relatively small farm of 650 acres in north east Cambridgeshire bordering the Deepings, the farm has a history dating back to Neolithic times.This is a mixed farm of both arable land and stock. Crops grown are; wheat, barley, oil seed rape, oats, sugar beet, peas, beans, grass and mustard for Colmans. Good animal husbandry is a particular passion of Judith’s,
