About Sarah Smart
With a nursing background, but from a farming family, when I met up with childhood friend and lifelong farmer Richard, we bought a small farm together on the Warwickshire, Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire borders. Recognising that we needed to diversify the farm to make it sustainable for future generations, we set about finding something that interested us both, gave us part time work, but didn’t take over our already busy lives in the way that our previous jobs had done. Having investigated various options, including growing tea, goji berries and truffles, we did two life changing things. Firstly, we visited friends who had a Round Barrow on their farm, and secondly, sadly, attended a farmer friends funeral at a crematorium. Little did we know, these two events would lead to our new business venture.
