In 2018, Anna Jones set up a group called Just Farmers to establish a network of farmers who could respond to enquiries from the media in an honest, straightforward and no-nonsense way – eliminating jargon that might be unfamiliar to journalists and the general public.
Anna has also written a book, Divide, in which tries to make sense of the fragile and sometimes fractious relationship between town and country – communities that Anna herself has straddled.
Here is someone who grew up on a family farm on the Welsh borders with a heritage stretching back five generations, but also lived the city life, experienced the ignorance and mistrust of how our food is produced – and even joined an Extinction Rebellion meeting.
Anna talks about the rationale behind the formation of Just Farmers and the issues raised in her book.
