Food Grower Podcast Episode 3
Alex (The Essex Allotment) – Going from supermarket worker to grower, and from allotment to farm.
The weekly podcast that talks all things food growing with those doing amazing things from across the UK and the world.
Every week we deliver you a podcast that interviews a fantastic food grower that is doing things differently, inspirationally or that has an awesome story to tell.
In this episode we talk to Alex from The Essex Allotment farm which started out as an allotment and now is a market garden aiming to do 100 veg boxes a week. This is a fantastic episode where we talk with Alex about where he began and how he moved from the corporate world in retail, through to working outside and what he does now.
We explore his model, how he doesn’t do any door to door delivery, plus speak about the models and people that inspire him and shape what he does.
This is a podcast that will hopefully inspire and inform you whatever experience you have… from aspiring grower, to casual allotmenteer, right through to fully fledged market gardener. We will be talking everything from no-dig to permaculture, mushrooms to marketing.
We are your hosts Chris from Fanfield Farm and Jack from Jacks Patch and we will be bringing you an inspirational interview, some tips and tricks from our own farms as well as the fun feature of quick fire questions that we ask every guest…. Obviously including whether they prefer an evening farm beer or morning farm coffee!!
