My guest this week on Desert Island Dishes is Julius Roberts
Julius is a first generation millennial farmer and rising star of the food scene.
In 2016 he gave up working at the acclaimed restaurant Noble Rot in London – and Swapped the rat race for an idyllic life of pigs, goats and chickens instead.
His foirst foray into farming was a small-holding in rural Suffolk and then last year he moved with his family to a farm in Dorset.
His charm and humble approach to life on the farm have seen him amass an army of followers online as he shares the trials and tribulations of farm life alongside his menagerie of animals. Julius describes himself as:
“A COOK, FARMER AND GARDENER ON A JOURNEY TO SELF-SUFFICIENCY ”
In 2020 The Times named him as one of the best Farmer – Foodies to follow on instagram.
He says his his aim is simple –
“I WANT TO EDUCATE MY AUDIENCE ON TOPICS INCLUDING ANIMAL WELFARE AND SEASONAL COOKING ”JULIUS ROBERTS
