What’s your favourite hop? Bramling Cross. Beautiful blackcurrant aromas which go perfectly with my favourite style of beers. What’s your favourite beer? Mmm, tricky one.

group Technical Director
Team member since 2008
Born in Herefordshire to Hop Farming parents. His family stopped growing hops when he was five years old but as the old saying goes “once you have been scratched by the hop it is always in your blood!”
Will studied Computer Systems Engineering at University and embarked on a career in the field soon afterwards, working for a local Computer Services company and working his way up from technician to Engineering Manager.
After 10 years, hops came back to bite him after a discussion with Paul Corbett, in a pub, over a few pints about the hop industry and opportunities within it. Keen to get involved with the hop industry once more, Will joined Charles Faram in September 2008. In 2009 he became Sales Manager and in April 2015 became a Director of the Company.
Will has been involved in co-ordinating the breeding programme for Charles Faram, and in September 2019 became Group Technical Director to have a much more focused effort on technical improvements across the business.
