Rock & Roll Farming with Charles Anyan Thought it was about time I interviewed the man, the myth, the legend, Mr. Lincolnshire himself, Charles Anyan!  We talk about the farm that’s been in his family for over 200 years, his frankly disappointing lack of dodgy tattoos from his time in Australia, his Great Great Grandfather being a founder member of the National Farmers Union, and how he went from never even owning a pair of trainers to running a sub-4 hour marathon in just 9 months – what a guy. 

Inform. Challenge. Inspire.
