Nic Renison – New NFFN England Steering Group Member
Nic comes from a dairy farm on the Welsh Borders and spent her first ten years working within family business,
milking the cows, and selling the product. The simplicity, integrity and honesty of that cycle and its value to the producer, environment and consumer hasn’t left her conscience. But unfortunately working with family was not going to enrich her life – all is now well!
Having then headed north to sell milk recording then animal drugs, in 2005 She met the Farm Manager Reno (Paul Renison) and persuaded him that a huge mortgage was much more exciting than a salary. So, in 2012 the now family of four moved into a caravan in the yard at Cannerheugh, it was a testing 18 months whilst developing the house and business.
Nature and farming have always been at the heart of Nic and Paul’s farm and having struggled with the concept of planting three-meter-wide hedges back in 2014, they are now Nic’s pride and joy.
For the last 3 years she has worked at AHDB, but now with the egg mobile in full swing, direct sales of meat growing and a glamping enterprise to kick start, she will be back on the farm full time from mid-February 2021 and we welcome her onto the NFFN England Steering Group from February as well.
