Helen Rebanks – The Farmer’s Wife

Date: 24th September
Time: 4:30pm
Location: Tetbury Goods Shed Arts Centre

The Farmer’s Wife: My Life in Days is a beautifully illustrated, honest and intimate meditation on the power of domestic life. Helen is many things as well as a wife: businesswoman, teacher, conservationist, working mother and cook. She lives with her husband James and four children in the Lake District and has been cooking and baking for more than 30 years, both professionally and in farmhouse kitchens. Her love and enthusiasm for food and farming is completely infectious, and her recipes are delicious.

Helen will be discussing her engrossing and tenacious account both of the running a home, and of the tightly knit family team which has made their farm globally important with its innovations and drive towards sustainability. With Anna Herbert.
