Meet our grower!

by on March 2, 2013

IanToddWe’re really excited to introduce you to Ian Todd, our full-time grower. Ian has over 30 years experience of growing – including crops and animals! His passion started when he was a young boy helping on the family allotment.

Ian is really getting to grips with the fields, preparing them for this years crops. Ian will be splitting the main plot into four areas – this will help us to manage our crop rotation better and will also help to keep water on site during drier periods (ha ha I hear you cry?!) and will help us to keep hold of our top soil if it’s very wet. The manure has been delivered and dug in so now we need to make the most of all that juicy plant food!

When he’s not on the field Ian is busy building cloches to warm the soil ready for planting. His books at home have been evicted to make room for the 400 potatoes now being chitted on his bookshelves. He’s also drooling over seed catalogues as he decides which varieties to choose. If you have any questions for Ian get in touch!
