From a farm in Leicestershire 











From a Leicestershire Farm to Burnopfield, County Durham


Following a recent trip to visit parents and my 'stamping ground' in Derbyshire I spent some time looking back at old photos and found this one of Grandma's childhood garden (in Leicestershire): growing food was an essential part of every day life for this family with 7 children (along with milking cows and keeping thousands of hens!) .

Some of the recipes I use for Woodcrest Kitchen are family recipes and it's amazing to think that produce from this garden was being preserved using the recipes and methods I'm using today.

I think growing vegetables must be in the blood!
