Tony Little MSc

Tony Little has 18 years working in organic and sustainable agriculture in the UK and internationally, and was a key figure at Organic Centre Wales for nearly 15 years. In that time he advised over 500 farmers on the implications of conversion through the OCW helpline, delivered the Farming Connect Organic Development Programme (2003 – 2011) and contributed to Welsh Government policy development. Since 2009, he has played an important role in growing the organic market in Wales, identifying opportunities for organic producers and building the relationships across the supply chain to bring those opportunities to fruition.

He has a thorough knowledge of organic practices, principles and standards and has excellent links with food and farming businesses in Wales, organic control bodies and the Welsh Government.

He works on an organic upland sheep farm which he is diversifying into horticulture.
