Richard farms the land at Lower Eggleton Court and Tarrington in Herefordshire with his wife Lucy and their two sons Bertie and Sam, Lucy is also from long established hop growing family. After leaving school Bertie worked in the Charles Faram office for a season and this gave him a good overview of what happens to the hops after they leave the farm. Both brothers are now studying hard and helping out on the farm when they can, carrying on the strong family tradition of hop growing into the sixth generation!
