Adam, a regular presenter on the Sunday night BBC Countryfileprogramme, runs Cotswold Farm Park which has been hugely successful inintroducing the public and youngsters in particular to the importance offarming and conservation, with a special emphasis on rare breeds. Alongsidethat, he also has a 650 hectare (1,600 acre) farm on which he works with his businesspartner Duncan Andrews, carrying out a wide range of activities. These includecrop production, rearing animals for breeding, meat and wool, contractingoperations, wildlife conservation and recreational activities.
Adam and Duncan have been running a New Holland rotorcombine for the past four years, and their experience of its performance andreliability made it easy for Adam and his team to decide to purchase a brandnew New Holland CR 9070 with a 30-foot Varifeed header. Its a superb piece ofkit, said Adam, and Im looking forward to putting it to work on this yearsharvest.
Adrian Lovegrove said: We are very pleased to be able tocontinue TH Whites association with Adam Henson in this way. He has been atremendous ambassador for good farming practice and is committed to many of thecauses that TH White supports as well.

CR Combines are designed with the future in mindand we are confident that Adam will reap the rewards of his investment.
