We are delighted to share that Gary Rumbold and Adam Lockyear successfully cycled 537km in 5 days as part of FWAG SW Green Revolutions cycle tour. Completed over the 8th – 12th October 2022, our cyclists took on the incredible challenge of cycling across the SouthWest to showcase amazing farmers and landowners producing food and fibre in a thriving landscape for people and nature.

During their five days of cycling, they also visited 10 farmers and landowners and were involved in 3 events and farm walks. Just a few highlights from the tour are pictured below…


We had the opportunity to visit farms of all scales during the journey, from a couple of thousand acres down to 40 acres, which just really shows that any scale can work with the right mindset and attitude to do something good

“Really inspiring, that’s the amazing thing about it I just feel I can go back to the desk now, really primed, refreshed and ready to go because all those stories are just amazing” 

- Gary Rumbold



“Sustainable food production and that desire to produce nutritious food, that can be made available to the public was absolutely high on the agenda for every farm that we went to”

Gary Rumbold



“Every farm we went to we could have spent hours longer there, it was so fascinating talking to the farmers and landowners involved, so keeping the time down was a challenge for those visits and sometimes we didn’t quite manage it”

I really loved going down to Holt Farm, where we saw a really great natural flood management project that we have been working on and to see that fully embedded and in action was really exciting. I was so impressed, to see a young entrepreneurial farmer, who is producing meat boxes for the local community, and it was just great to see that passion on a relatively small-scale agriculture holding

“We covered dairy, veg, beef, lamb and they are all working to similar motivations – getting their soils working and the nutrition from the soil that’s available into the crops they are producing”
