Episode 31: Food and Drink

Summary

Joe Crowley meets up with chef Romy Gill to celebrate the glories of seasonal food at Chew Magna Community Farm, delves into the world of no-dig farming and rolls up his sleeves to help pack orders with a thriving veg box business. He also calls into Hartcliffe Community Garden, which Countryfile helped to establish as part of our Plant Britain initiative, and dives into the archives to celebrate the best of British food and drink.

Review

Joe Crowley won’t be doing any back-breaking spadework at Chew Magna Community Farm, as he’s delving into the world of no-dig farming, the aim of which is to disturb the soil as little as possible so that plants and organisms break down naturally. After discovering all about the resulting benefits, he’s heading off to Hartcliffe Community Garden, which first featured in the show’s Plant Britain special earlier this year. On this return visit, schoolchildren are getting to harvest the vegetables they’ve grown. 

And speaking of edible produce, there’ll also be another chance to see some features from the archive, including Anita Rani’s encounter with a Highland beef farmer and Steve Brown’s report on food waste.
