UK: Poultry firm’s employees create new farming podcast ‘Boots and Heels’

Poultry firm Vencomatic UK’s employees Rebecca Wilson and Lizzie McLaughlin created the ‘Boots and Heels – In Our Shoes’ podcast with an aim to show that no background should be a barrier while interacting with farmers.

“We think that there are so many opportunities for both employment and fulfilment within agriculture,” Rebecca said.

“The podcast made me reflect on how we can have a distorted picture of agriculture, viewing it through a lens. In truth, there’s so much to learn about the relationship between farming and our food, as well as the fact that agriculture doesn’t have to be limited to traditional stereotypes,” Lizzie added.

The first episode was released 26 February that looked at their backgrounds and how they found themselves working in the industry.
