FarmED talks to rural businesses, romping from food security and sourcing local food, to the importance of biodiversity and human diversity, and the issue of how to engage everyone from farmers, GPs, schoolteachers and supermarket shoppers.
The group also talks about how the pandemic has impacted them and the challenges and opportunities facing growers, restaurateurs and farm shops.
“It’s about how to make good local food accessible to all, finding the gaps in the food chain and how to fill those gaps,’ says Jonty Brunyee, FarmED manager and host of the show.
Jonty is joined by FarmED Founder, Ian Wilkinson; Ali Mirza from Cotswold Made Co; James Butterworth from the Cotswold Market Garden; and Nick Pullen from Wild Thyme restaurant in Chipping Norton.
