John Tallowin

​

John was born in Hickling in 1947 and has lived on or around Willow Farm ever since.  He took over its management on the death of his father in 1981.

​

John talks about the changes in farming over his lifetime,  especially about the very big machinery now in use that “floats over the land”.

​

Conservation is important to John, and he speaks eloquently about the return of the cranes to Hickling.

​

He is a talented photographer and is never without his camera when he is out and about on the farm.
