Ben Leach (born 2 May 1969 in Liverpool, England) was the keyboard and synthesizer player in the Liverpool-based pop band, The Farm.[1] He joined in 1986 at the age of 17 after the death of Andy McVann in a car crash on 1 October that year, and was the band's youngest member, still being with them at the height of their success in autumn and early winter of 1990, when they achieved chart success with Groovy Train and All Together Now.

He later went on to become keyboard player for the second incarnation of Happy Mondays in the late 1990s.[2]
