The environment is close to her heart and she’s passionate about sustainable solutions for farmers in a changing industry landscape. Lynn is in charge of new Miscanthus sales and marketing and all of our farming events. “I enjoy helping people and feel that Miscanthus is an ideal solution to farmers navigating through the uncertainty of Brexit.”
Ben Booth’s role at Terravesta is dedicated to increasing Miscanthus sales and his background is also rooted in agriculture, although his diverse experience brings a unique skillset to the position.
