Stephen Keighley, one of Tamar Grow Local’s farm-start tenants at Mill Lane Acres in Metherell will be starring in the new series Devon and Cornwall produced by True North TV and being shown on More 4 this month.
Stephen, who is from Launceston, caught the eye of the production company as he was new to market gardening, a big lifestyle change from a previous career in Estate Agency in London. He joins 3 other tenants at Mill Lane Acres who are all establishing their own growing businesses including a vineyard, orchard and another market garden. In his first summer, Stephen harvested a wide variety of fresh vegetables and salads which were sold at a market stall in Launceston and also at Tamar Valley Food Hubs.
Devon and Cornwall is on Monday nights on More 4 at 9pm with Stephen’s episode being broadcast on Monday 29th April. Brockley Farm produce will be available over the summer atwww.tamarvalleyfoodhubs.org.uk and further farm start plots are available at Mill Lane Acres.
