The Team

Andy - the farmer

Andy Bragg is the farmer here, following in the footsteps of the last three generations of the Bragg family. Andy's great grandfather rented neighbouring Whiddon Farm in 1896 and his grandfather took on the tenancy of West Town Farm in 1949. Andy's father Roy then followed in 1953 and then Andy himself in 1983 - all tenants of the Church Commissioners who are the landowners. Andy decided to farm organically in 1992, first producing organic milk and now organic beef. He is a keen environmentalist and loves to engage the public in learning more about where their food comes from.

Helen - Farm stockman

Helen works on the farm full time, and every other weekend so Andy can have some time off. Her favourite time on the farm is spent with the cattle. Helen is enjoying learning all about organic farming. Previous employment including gardening and tree work, Helen came to the farm for a change in career.

Izzy- Farm hand 

Izzy came to West Town Farm in Autumn 2016. She helps Helen around the farm, and has become Winstons (farm dog) personal  groomer. Izzy studied at Bicton College for three years in animal care. Her favoruite thing on the farm is the pigs she loves how intelligent they're. 

Grace - Events/Meat Sales Manager  

Having spent the last few years working for The Arabian Tent Company in Brighton, Grace gained alot of experience within the event industry. Grace co-ordinates all of our weddings, public events, birthday parties, conferences, and a whole host of other activities. She also deals with our meat. Chances are Grace is the one you'll speak to when phoning or emailing the farm. Her favourite thing to do on the farm is walk the rolling hills.
