We asked Adrian Tiller from Sherwood Road Organics a few questions.
What is your favorite thing to eat right now?
Always meat and 3 veg for me! This weather it’s lamb chops (followed closely by hogget or goat). In summer, I take after my parents with my love of cold meat & salad. I’m looking forward to our first nitrate-free Ham.
When and how did you make the decision to become a farmer?
We didn’t get much of a choice in my day, my dad wanted the farms to go to the next generation and I was the only son. I made the choice to become an Organic Farmer around 15 years ago when I saw the effects of chemicals on our land and my health.
What’s the most surprising thing about farming?
Nothing much surprises me, but Mother Nature keeps me on my toes! The older I get the more I learn to live with her though…
Why is organic food important?
The obvious health benefits. That and the less chemicals in the world, the better.
Where do you see the future of farming? What do you hope for it?
The trend of using less inputs is steady (not dramatic), I’m sure this will continue.
