Radio 4 - On Your Farm

Online Podcast

Radio 4's Farming Today, On Your Farm series produced a show about A Field of Wheat.

"Agriculture in Britain is a pretty lonely business these days. Many farming businesses are run by one man or woman who hires in contractors for the big jobs. In Lincolnshire Peter Lundgren has solved that problem by finding forty-two people to share a year in the life of a twenty acre field of wheat.

In an experiment in social art The Field of Wheat collective invited interested individuals from around the world to pay their share of the cost of seeding the field and then allowed them to share in making some of the decisions about the field and its crop".
