Our Chairman

Marshal Papworth

Tom studied Land Management at Reading University specialising in rural practice, before beginning a career as a Chartered Surveyor and Land Agent. In 2011 he co-founded a company that advises clients on farmland investment and management in both the UK and the rest of Europe, and is involved in various projects including investment in high value fruit and veg cropping, renewable energy, and its use in sustainable food production.

Tom joined the Marshal Papworth committee in 2011, he was fortunate enough to attend the Royal Agricultural Society of the Commonwealth conference in Zambia in September 2012 as one of the Next Generation Delegates, learning a great deal about the issues African farmers face on a day-to-day basis.

Tom commented: “I have been passionate about farming and the countryside from a very young age having been brought up in a family where agriculture, horses and the rural way of life have played a big part. My career enabled me to understand fully how important agriculture and sustainable farming can be in providing an income. The scholarships from the Marshal Papworth Fund go a long way in helping to educate people on how to increase income opportunities and strengthen local economies.”
