Carl Legge

Carl Legge lives with his wife and son on a three-acre smallholding on the rural Llŷn Peninsula in North Wales. In 1997 he resigned from a well-paid corporate job to focus on the smallholding. They grow fruit and vegetables in raised beds, polytunnels, and forest garden areas, and keep chickens. What was subsidized sheep pasture is now a thriving nature reserve which provides Carl and his family with a large proportion of their own food. Carl is a gourmet cook and blogs regularly at http://www.carllegge.com.
