Adam Henson meets Farmer of the Year finalist

Adam Henson meets the second finalist in the BBC Radio 4 Farmer of the Year category in the Food and Farming Awards. Paul Sousek shows Adam around his farm near Bude in Cornwall.

Paul Sousek farms 70 acres organically near Bude in Cornwall. With no previous experience he entered farming in 2005 because he wanted to become self sufficient and reduce his carbon emissions.

Paul farms a herd of local Red Ruby cattle and a herd of native rare breed Wiltshire Horn sheep. He has completely converted the farmhouse to run on renewable power and now Paul claims to have a less than zero carbon footprint. He has installed solar thermal heating, photovoltaic cells, a wood burner burning home grown wood and a wind turbine. Also all the vehicles Paul runs for farming and delivering the meat boxes are powered by biodiesel that he produces on the farm from waste vegetable oil.

Paul regularly hosts farm visits to teach people about renewable energy installations and promoting eco-living in general.

Presenter: Adam Henson Producer: Martin Poyntz-Roberts.
