Robert Fraser is an Executive Director of the Real Farming Trust and has been involved in many of the RFT’s projects and programmes, including the Oxford Real Farming Conference, the College for Real Farming, and the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Agroecology for Sustainable Farming. However, most of Robert’s time has been spent exploring and developing novel ways to support the sector, both in terms of financial support and business mentoring and he has been leading on the development and management of the Loans for Enlightened Agriculture Programme (LEAP). Robert is also a livestock farmer so has a broad and deep understanding of the sector and the challenges it faces. He lives in Herefordshire with his wife and two children.
