Nick Rodgers Expand I joined the Farm shortly after leaving the Navy in 1998 as a volunteer and spent a loot of time digging, fencing and laying concrete! I went on to do some maths and English tutoring and was then asked to join the Council of Management in 2001. Some time later, I went on to Chair the Council when Tony Ford (the original Chair) retired. I continued to serve in that capacity until handing over to Will more recently. Away from the farm, I teach meteorology at Cardiff University and am involved in some maritime related charities. Many of you will know my daughter Sian and wife Fiona who both love pigs!!
