Great food from the ground up

A one-time feared food critic, Matthew Evans swapped the city life for the country and has become a farmer and chef, realising a long-held dream when he built a farm to table restaurant on his 70-acre Fat Pig Farm. Gourmet Farmer follows the trajectory of Matthew’s life and his passion for growing a business where he puts to the test his primary belief that we should all be directly connected with our food: either by growing it or rearing it ourselves or sourcing from local producers.

Across the series, we track his progress, exciting developments and challenges, including a major focus on improving the health of his farm’s soil, naturally. Matthew is literally starting from the ground up to transform his food and his farm, leaving it more productive and healthier for future generations come. From foodie to farmer, to chef to rehabilitator of the land. It’s one man versus nature. How hard can it be?
