An article that our founder, Rob Verkerk, published today comments on a report just released by San Francisco-based think tank RethinkX. It suggests that traditional livestock and dairy farming will collapse in around a decade. The trigger, the report proposes, will be cell-based agriculture that relies on taking stem cells from animals and growing them in labs rather than on farms.

Rob thought it might therefore be helpful to talk to a farmer, one that has long been passionate about the relationship between nature, food and health. Durwin Banks from the Linseed Farm in Sussex was the man he chose to talk to, and extracts from the interview are found in our video below.
