Vicki Hird & Rebugging The Planet

ffinlo Costain talks to Vicki Hird - a farming expert and author who's been at the heart of environmental, food and agricultural policy discussions for over 30 years. Her new book, Rebugging The Planet, is set to be the must-buy stocking filler for Christmas this year.

We discuss the new book, which shows us that bugs are beautiful, charismatic and economically valuable. We also discuss food and farming policy, and how the new post-Brexit farm payments will affect agricultural land use in England.

Vicki Hird is also head of sustainable farming at Sustain.
