Culinary skills are a legacy we were blessed to receive from home. As a farmer’s daughter, Anna learnt as a child to prepare and preserve food from the annual slaughter and to cook traditional dishes. We both had mothers who always insisted that only the best would do when it came to cooking, they went above and beyond the ordinary. In addition to serving delicious food, they set beautiful tables with fine china and silver cutlery taking pride of place. We also had the great good fortune of being included in the kitchen from very early on, and that has contributed greatly to food and cooking playing such a big role in our lives.
Finally, as the 9th generation of custodians of this farm, we set great store by making sure that it retains a level of activity and value that will entice one of our children to take over when we one day retire.
