Farmer and TV Presenter
View PDF version


Adam Henson is perhaps the best-known farmer in the UK, presenting his own section on BBC's Countryfile to millions of viewers each Sunday evening. But farming and conservation are Adam's first passions and when the camera stops rolling, there is still plenty of work to be done.

Adam broke into television following a presenter search on the BBC’s Countryfile programme and in 2013 Adam teamed up with celebrity chef Nigel Slater to co-present Nigel and Adam’s Farm Kitchen, a four-part series exploring how food gets from farm to fork, and how to make the most of seasonal produce. 

Adam has filmed three series for BBC Lambing Live alongside Kate Humble, the third series of which aired in
spring 2014.  Each series featured a year in the life of a sheep farmer with half of the programme live from the lambing shed based on the farm, the programme was very well received by both the public and sheep farmers alike.
