Will heads to the Lake District in Cumbria, England, to talk to farmer and author, Andrea Meanwell about her family’s 500-year connection to the area…

From Will:

In one of the most enjoyable interviews I’ve done so far, we talk about her family’s 500-year connection to the area, archaeology, laser beams, Roman forts, fulfilling her dream of owning a farm of her own, and her new role as lake district farming officer.

All this, and much more.
