Let me pour you a cup of
coffee and take some freshly baked croissants from the Aga while I tell you a
little about myself. I was born in Tiptree, Essex, England, where, upon leaving
school I went into the family farming business with my father and elder brother.
We grew soft fruit, mainly strawberries, and vegetables until the late 1980s
when I moved down to Nanscawen Manor House.
