I’m Janie, chief story teller & tea brewer here at The Hedgecombers.
This site exists to document (and admittedly, sometimes mock) the successes & failures of Jonny & I on our small patch of Cornwall, South West England.
Our ultimate aim is to build up a resource of useful posts, ideas & recipes, invaluable to anyone starting out on their own self sufficiency, gastro-adventure.
From growing fruit & veggies, rearing animals for meat and eggs, preserving excess produce for leaner months and cooking up a storm in our teeny little kitchen. Real food is the main driving force behind all that we do.
We love receiving comments from readers (click the button below each post). We love seeing you on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or Pinterest. We love your ideas & suggestions on how we could improve this website, or improve our land management systems. Introduce yourselves and your blogs, and let’s build our own community of Real Fooders!
Together, let’s grow, sow, feed, dig, pluck, mend, pick, weed, whittle, water, harvest, cook and eat. Just not all at once.
I do hope you’ll don your virtual wellies, and join us for the ride.
