Farmer Network member Craig Booth took time out from lambing to meet HRH The Prince of Wales on his visit to Settle on Wednesday.
Only finding out about the visit 15 minutes before, Craig didn’t have time for a shave and change of clothes but popped along in his farming gear as he was keen to thank HRH for the support given by PCF to The Farmer Network training voucher scheme.
Through the vouchers Craig has been able to do some training and set up his own contract spraying business. HRH asked Craig how lambing was going and commented on how typical it was that lambing starts and we are hit with bad weather.
When asked about meeting HRH Craig said ” He was a really nice chap. He showed genuine interest in the business and the farm.”
