Want to know more about growing Blackcurrants in the UK?
24th March 2023
In this latest episode of the Countryside Kitchen Meets podcast host Milly Fyfe chats to inspirational businesswoman Jo Hilditch, who grows blackcurrants in Herefordshire. Last year Jo ‘wing-walked’ for charity, raising a significant amount of money for several worthy causes, and appeared on Dragons Den, turning the formidable dragons down after she received several offers.
Milly is a marketing, PR, events and fundraising specialist, providing digital marketing support to food and farming businesses. Milly and her husband Andrew farm beef suckler cattle, sheep, arable crops and a few rare breed pigs in rural Northamptonshire. Milly writes and contributes to several publications including the Daventry Express, Rugby Advertiser and BBC Radio Northampton. During the height of the pandemic, Milly established a food blog called No Fuss Meals for Busy Parents, helping to make a connection between food grown in the UK and tasty meals that the whole family can enjoy. From there her podcast ‘The Countryside Kitchen Meets’’ was created, in which she interviews farmers and food producers about what they grow or raise.
