Thank you to our friends and long standing One In A Million Corporate Partner Fortem People Recruitment for hosting our September 2019 network event with a difference as guests were treated to an inspirational tour by farmer/ businessman Tom Dodgson around his impressive Souber Dairy farm, near Gargrave, North Yorkshire.
Tom Dodgson, the owner of J R Dodgson & Son, Diary Farming, gave us a fascinating insight into how they have grown a traditional family dairy farming business, established in 1927, into a modern production facility following significant investment, to have over 1,000 cattle, selling over 22,000 litres of milk per day to one of the worlds largest dairy processors, Arla, who are a cooperative that they own a share in.
A fabulous morning was rounded off by lunch and networking at Fortem People’s picturesque countryside office.
We would like to say a special thank you to Jane Vincent, Rachel Deeks and all colleagues at Fortem People for being fabulous hosts and to Tom Dodgson for giving up his time to share his story ‘from the farm to the city’.
