Arthur@brightseeds.co.uk

Arthur’s involvement with Bright Seeds stretches back to his student days when he joined us as an apprentice. He subsequently went on to become an award-winning graduate from the Royal Agricultural University, and a permanent member of the Bright Seeds team. Arthur’s knowledge of countryside affairs is practical as well as academic, and he helps to run a syndicate shoot near his home in north Hampshire.

His passion for the countryside makes him a popular speaker at gamekeeper events, and he is a regular visitor to educational institutions such as Newton Rigg College. He considers it important to take the positive messages of game and conservation to a wider audience. Arthur is also an ambassador for The Country Food Trust, a charity that Bright Seeds is proud to support.
