The Rt. Hon. Arthur Edward Rory Guinness, 4th Earl of Iveagh, joined the Marshal Papworth Fund as its Patron in 2014.
Born and brought up on a farm in Dublin, Lord Iveagh is the Guinness family custodian of Elveden Farms, a 22,500 acre Suffolk estate, which has been farmed in hand for four generations. Over the last 30 years, Lord Iveagh has played an intrinsic role in moving the estate from dairying and sugar beet into field scale vegetable and cereals production, producing over 100,000 tonnes for UK and overseas markets.
“I have long enjoyed an association with the East of England Agricultural Society, who manage the Marshal Papworth Fund, so when I was asked to help support the great work that the charity undertakes I was only too pleased. I am part of an inter-generational family business and I know the importance that the role of sustainability plays in securing social, ecological and commercial longevity.”
“Being equipped to effect change, quickly and efficiently is fundamental to our future and being able to share such skills and knowledge with agricultural students in developing countries will help us to support and maximise opportunities for generations to come.”
