Meet the Farmers

Meet the Dairy Daughter – Amy Eggleston

Today we’re in Leicestershire and Ben is meeting fifth generation dairy farmer Amy Egglestone who some of you will know better as ‘the dairy daughter’ on Instagram. Amy and her family run a 600-cow dairy herd on a New Zealand-style grazing and spring calving system. As well as her life on the farm she is also a rural marketing specialist and is the Director of Pastures Green Communications which she set up in 2018 to help rural and agricultural businesses promote themselves both on and offline. 

Meet the Farmers is produced by RuralPod Media, the only specialist rural podcast production agency.
