EASTBROOK FARM VEAL

Veal crates were banned in the UK in 1990 and in the rest of Europe in 2007. Rose veal comes from animals that are farmed using better welfare methods than in traditional veal rearing. Over a decade ago, high welfare veal farming in the UK was pioneered by Helen Browning’s ‘Eastbrook Farm Organic Meat’

Tony Redsell's Hop Farm, Kent
Tony Redsell's Hop Farm, Kent

There are only 5 farms left in Kent producing hops for commercial beer making. Tony Redsell is a top hop grower. He cultivates East Kent Goldings and Fuggles at his farm near Faversham in Kent where he has been farming for 60 years. Before mechanical picking machines were invented in the 1930’s, Londoners would flood to Kent to pick the hops to earn money during the harvest times.

Mwanaka Farm Foods, Enfield

Zimbabwean farmer David Mwanaka has gone from trying to grow white maize in his landlord’s back yard in Tilbury to farming more than 60 acres in Enfield and Salisbury. White maize looks similar to sweetcorn but is less sweet. The maize needs a balance of high temperatures and good rainfall and as it deteriorates very quickly, needs to be eaten on the same day that it is picked.
