A POPULAR BBC TV presenter and farmer has paid a special visit to a Herefordshire care home.

Adam Henson, who is one of Britain's most famous farmers thanks to his presenting role on the long-running BBC show, Countryfile, was invited to Deer Park care home in Ledbury to discuss how he has transitioned from a life on the land to one in the media.

Deer Park, in Martins Way, provides care for a range of needs, including residential, nursing and dementia care on a long or short-term basis.

Mr Henson also talked about his efforts to conserve rare breeds of farm animals as co-owner of Cotswolds Farm Park, a legacy left to him by his father.


He gave residents and guests a glimpse into his life as he shared stories and anecdotes on being part of the hugely popular evening show, which was first shown in July 1988.

Home manager Marie Wood said: "It was a pleasure to welcome Adam Henson into our beautiful home and our residents and staff found the talk fascinating."
