Iain Tolhurst is a member of the Institute of Organic Training and Advice and has delivered specialist organic advice to farmers and growers since 1982.

Says Iain: “I have been working part time as an organic consultant since 1982, having been a practising organic producer since 1976. My main area of expertise is with horticulture, vegetable box schemes and stock-free systems. I have visited over 1000 farms to advise on all aspects of organic conversion and production systems both in the UK and overseas.

I have advised in Albania, California, Guyana, Ireland, Iceland, Kosovo, Morocco, Mozambique and Rep. of Moldova. I also work with various organisations in the UK such as Horticultural Research International, (Wellesbourne and E.Malling) Henry Doubleday Research Association, Organic Research Centre, Plunkett Foundation and Trans Rural Trust. I also have annual contracts with several farmers.”

Delivering Advice

This can be in several forms. Some will be based at your farm, such as initial feasibility studies and formative conversion planning. Other components I may complete in my office and forward to you.
