From Wilton Gate House Farm, nestled in the rolling fields bordering the North York Moors National Park, Andrew Hall looks back on a varied life of farming. This year, Andrew Hall is celebrating ten years of rearing laying hens to RSPCA Assured higher welfare standards.
“I started farming in 1980 when I was a teenager,” says Andrew. “My father bought one pig as a hobby, and then gradually expanded his herd. My grandparents also ran a dairy farm and I spent much of my childhood there.”
