Richard Capper

Richard Capper has lived at Stocks Farm all his life and has farmed here since leaving Cirencester Agricultural College over 25 years ago.  As Head of the Farm, Head of the Household, Chief Fixer and General Superman, Richard is particularly pleased with his new projects – experimental hopyards and the new Red Windsor orchards. 

He is a very keen cyclist and in June 2016 undertook the Hop Cycle Challenge from John O’Groat’s to Lands End with hop merchants Paul Corbett and Andrew Whalley, and Head Brewer from St Austell Brewery, Roger Ryman.  They raised over £4000.00 for Prostate Cancer UK.
