Ben Canning

Associate Farm Business Consultant

I grew up in rural Gloucestershire and have recently graduated from Harper Adams University with a BSc Honours in Agriculture. I thrive on the challenge of getting the most out of farm businesses and helping farmers to become the best at what they do. Not being from a dairy background has not held me back and allowed me to gain a better understanding of multiple areas of the agricultural industry. I have first-hand experience of working in a number of agricultural sectors, through this I have gained expertise in completing successful grant applications and countryside stewardship agreements.

I am now an associate consultant working in the South Farm Consultancy Team and since becoming an associate consultant I have helped assess dairy farmers impact on the environment and then provided appropriate actions in order to reduce their emissions moving forward.

I enjoy keeping active, shooting and walking in the countryside, though most of my spare time is spent either playing or watching rugby.
