Caroline Stocks, based in the United Kingdom, is a freelance journalist who writes about agriculture for the U.K.’s leading farming and mainstream national media.
Before she became a journalist, she had no farming background and fell into the industry after she started working for a business magazine publisher after graduating from university.
She went on to work as a news editor for Farmers Weekly, the U.K.’s leading farming title, where she specialized in writing about U.K. and European agricultural politics.
After being awarded a Nuffield Farming Scholarship in 2010, in which she investigated agricultural communications with a focus on social media, she decided to set up her own freelance journalism and communications agency.
She now writes on a range of topics from technical dairy production to farm policy and offers communications and social media advice to a number of high-profile companies across the food and farming sector.
