We are sad to announce the death of Farm Radio’s founder John Holman who passed away in January this year.
John spent many hours each week collecting and editing all the programmes for Farm Radio.
Our thoughts go to his family and friends.
Welcome to the New mobile friendly Farm Radio.
We are adding the programmes from the old website as quickly as we can, but if you would like to still visit the old website then please click here.
The internet station for farmers and others interested in farming, working in the “Chalk and Cheese” area of Dorset and the “Levels and Moors” area of Somerset, brought to you by Trilith, the Rural Media Charity. To listen to the items, simply click on the “New Programmes” menu button above.
What our listener’s have to say…
“I have just been listening and think it’s a great service. . . the radio article was fab, a really well crafted and balanced item . . . your programme on the website is absolutely excellent . . . Excellent editing, if I may say so, sir! . . .”
Do have a look at the “Special Features” page, there are items there ranging from serious farming issues to a drama with new items added from time to time.”
We would be thrilled to have more feedback from you. Please go to “Contact Us“. You can write us a letter, send us an email, speak to us on the phone, or even leave a voice message, which, if you so wish, we can include in future programming. Something you have heard must have pleased or irritated you, so let us know about it.
If you are organising an event that would be of interest to our audience, you can leave an announcement on the voice mail number 01963 824458 and we will put it on the site. As far as we are concerned, your participation is very important, so, be bold, get in touch!
WOULD YOU LIKE TO JOIN THE “FARM RADIO” TEAM?
Farm Radio is pleased to be able to offer training to people with a background in farming, living in the “Chalk and Cheese” and “Levels and Moors” area, with priority given to women applicants. Training will be essentially “hands on” and, as we understand how busy farming people are these days, will be delivered at a time and place that is convenient to you, free of charge and will equip you (with continuing support) to become a reporter for your area. The main thing about Farm Radio is that it belongs to the farming community of the “Chalk and Cheese” and “Levels and Moors” areas so we really need your participation. Places are limited so please do not delay getting in touch.
