Christopher Deane

Agent

I became a partner in 1992. My family are all involved in farming in East Norfolk and although I am not involved in the day-to-day management, I am an active partner in a family farm as well as a large agricultural contracting group and a potato co-operative. This involvement enables me to maintain a thorough knowledge of modern agricultural practices and its associated industries. I also serve on the DEFRA Local Active Group, I am secretary and treasurer for the Norfolk Farmers Trust (past Chairman) and current committee member of the Stalham Farmers Club.
