Meet the Team - Farm Vets

As farm vets our main task is to ensure that the meat and milk which reaches your kitchen from British Farms is safe and produced to the highest standards of Welfare. Outside work he enjoys turning our British Farm produce into food to be enjoyed over a glass of foreign wine!
