Having grown up on the Lincolnshire family farm where he still lives, Ben has always had a vested interest in agriculture. He was attracted to a Seed Specialist role at Nickerson, thanks to the quality of both their seed and reputation, as well as the confidence the name instils.
Integrity is of the utmost importance to Ben. “I enjoy working for a company not peddling chemicals or other products,” he says. “We focus on seeds; the most important things, with no ulterior motive.”
He also prioritises connection and enjoys meeting different people, whether from a small family farm or a big commercial enterprise. With Ben, you can rest assured that you won’t be on the end of a pushy sales pitch: instead, he’ll take the time to get to know your particular soil status, farming systems and general situation, to see how best he can help.
