‘Female Farmer UK’ talks local food and farmer identity
Katie Anderson (aka Female Farmer UK) is a young farmer originally from Essex who is now living and working in Kent. Katie recently founded Paddlesworth Produce through which she directly sells her own produce and that of other local producers.
As part of this, she has created a ‘breakfast box’, a ‘Sunday roast box’ and a ‘BBQ box’. We talk a good deal about women in farming, what it’s like being a young farmer starting your own business, farm education, blogging and ‘farmer identity’.
