I’ve been lucky enough to work with the amazing people at Youth Food Movement on their latest Meet the Maker project. This initiative aims at bringing young consumers and local farmers together.
Helena and Angie (my trusty YFM companions) and I drove out to visit Norm from Highland Gourmet Potatoes and Rex from Saulsbury Berkshires. Visiting these farms was a huge privilege and a real eye opener to see just how much hard work and love goes into managing a farm and nurturing quality produce. I seriously had so much fun shooting these profiles – meeting the farmers and their families, capturing their lifestyle as well as learning about where and how food gets from paddock to plate was fascinating.
I’m looking forward to shooting the next part of this project again in a couple of months!
