Bucket List

Gardens around the world that I would love to visit…

Babylonstoren Farm in South Africa

Monty loves it, and now, so do I and it’s gone onto my ‘list’ – a farm hotel where you can eat produce from directly from the farm, all raised with a huge amount of love. It looks wonderful!

Stone Barns Centre for Food and Agriculture in the Pocantico Hills, New York

After reading Dan Barber’s brilliant book, The Third Plate, Stone Barns became the inspiration for me to create a bucket list in the first place. I’d love to visit the farm and also to eat at Chef’s table – I believe there is a (very) long waiting list.

Here’s an interesting video on some of their seed trials.

Villa Gamberaia, Tuscany in Italy

I first heard about this garden in Tim Richardson’s book ‘You Should Have Been Here Last Week‘ – just 3 acres in size, it’s situated on olive-covered hills overlooking Florence and looks simply stunning.
