About Andrew

Andrew is one of our two Farm Link Workers, hosted by the Peak District National Park Authority and delivering the Future Farmscapes project alongside Jack. He will be providing a first port of call for farmers and landowners wishing to engage with the Landscape Partnership. Andrew’s role will be to represent the views of farmers within the partnership, assist them with bids for funding as well as liaising with project officers to support any works being carried out.

Andrew has a strong connection with the South West Peak having been brought up in the area and returning to live, work and marry here after a rich and varied life in other parts. He has a degree in zoology, an MSc in ecology, and a PGCE in science. He has worked on local farms and has secured grants for many of these farms. He has traveled extensively - a highlight being running a DEFRA project for a year in a remote part of Papua New Guinea. His other jobs include outdoor education, ecological fieldwork and manual labour. As well as being a member of Buxton Mountain Rescue Team, he enjoys helping out on family farms, playing guitar in a rock band and getting out in the countryside.
