Kate meets Toby and Aly, whose passion for their local woodlands and love for coppicing combined to create a business making traditional, sustainable garden fencing and gates.
Back to the Land is in the heart of England meeting partners Toby and Aly, whose passion for their local woodlands in Herefordshire and love for coppicing combined their talents to create a business making traditional, sustainable garden fencing and gates. Kate joins them at their busiest time of year, felling season. The pressure is on to fell enough trees and to deliver on orders to sustain the business and keep their staff employed all year round.
Also, Kate joins a posh snack entrepreneur, who left his city job for the food market tapping into the growing popularity of air-dried meat snacks, popular with the health crowd for their high protein and low-fat properties. And we meet a man who lives and breathes Gloucester, its produce and rural heritage and is working very hard to try to preserve it. He saved the Gloucester cow from extinction and invented the famous Stinking Bishop cheese. And we join a shepherdess and designer who produces cushions, throws and rugs out of wool sheared from her own flock of rare-breed British sheep.
