Introducing John Hunt - Environmental Consultant

John is an Environmental Consultant experienced in providing farm and environmental advice, including Countryside Stewardship, the Environmental Land Management Schemes (ELMS), the Sustainable Farm Incentive (SFI) and woodland grants.  As a FACTS qualified advisor, John specialises in nutrient management planning, Nitrate Vulnerable Zones, soil health, and maximising the efficient use of fertilisers, livestock manures and slurries.  John also holds a BASIS Certificate in Crop Protection covering grassland and forage crops and is a member of the BASIS Professional Register.

Having graduated from the Royal Agricultural College in 2011, John went on to work for Rothamsted Research in Devon as a Farm Experiment and Trials Manager, and then for the Westcountry Rivers Trust as a Senior Farm Advisor.

Out of work, John lives in Devon where he enjoys long distance walking, watching rugby and gardening - anything that gets him outside in the fresh air.

John joined the Sherborne office in January and will be based in Devon but will cover the west country.

 Gerard Finnan commented that, “John will be a huge asset to our team in the Sherborne office and will enable our growing customer base to get sound advice on all aspects of the environment, soils, nutrient and slurry management to ensure compliance and to improve their business efficiencies in this important area in the future.
