John Savory

John Savory is a fourth generation farmer at Highfield Farm in Great Ryburgh Norfolk.  Predominantly an arable farm, John took over from his father after leaving Cirencester Royal Agricultural College in 1994.

In 1997 he diversified a proportion of the farm to Organic Soil Association standard for the production of eggs.  Within 18 months he began supplying Waitrose with organic eggs to fulfil the Columbian Blacktail organic egg contract.  Last year, John and his wife expanded their portfolio to supply quail meat and eggs to restaurants and retail outlets. 

Between 1998 and 2007, John also spent time in the Royal Air Force Regiment 2620 Squadron as a commissioned officer.
