"John Pawsey at Shimpling Park Farms has contract farmed my farm since 2001. We followed suit with his conversion to organic farming and have been very happy with the whole arrangement. Its great to have such an enthusiastic and knowledgable guy to work with."

We can help you

With 25 years experience of farming organically John helps other farmers make the change from chemical based farming to a regenerative nature friendly more profitable style of agriculture. To find out how you could change your farming system please do contact John to discuss how he can help you make this exciting transition. We can help and be involved as little or as much as you would like.

Contract Farming

As well as our family farm of 1,500 acres we help 8 different neighbours farm their farms organically taking our farmed area to in excess of 4,500 acres. We do everything for our farmers from sowing their crops to harvesting them, establishing their environmental options and providing organic agronomic services. If you would like to talk to us about farming organically please do contact us.

Environmental Advice

John has been designing environmental schemes on our own farm as well as our contract farms since 1998. If you would like help designing a scheme that fairly rewards you for a nature-friendly way of farming within a sustainable organic rotation that grows healthy crops, increases the organic matter and the health of your soil as well as supporting biodiversity on your farm, please do contact John.

Public Speaking & Moderating

John has been invited to speak about the way he farms by many organisations nationally and internationally. From Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board on their Monitor and Strategic farms, to the National Farmers Union, the Groundswell event, the National Cereals event, the Oxford Farming Conference, the Oxford Real Farming Conference as well as multiple farming clubs and associations in the UK and across Europe. John has an enjoyable and lively moderating style that brings energy and resonance to conference panel discussions. Teasing out the core threads of ideas from differing panellists, John’s light touch while having a sharp attentive insight can shed real focus and capture lasting interest.
