In this introductory episode of Hedgecombers, Jane Sarchet introduces us to her farm and her life in Cornwall. As she forages to make her 5 minute berry jam, we get glimpses of the beautiful and idyllic Cornwall countryside, a county where history lives in every winding little street.
After a visit to Da Bar Bakery (meaning good bread in Cornish), we see Jane visit Terras farm, a small award winning farm which produces sustainable, high quality duck that is reared with the best animal welfare in mind. We later see Jane fry up a duck liver in Myrtle (her beloved campervan) and finally, make duck tacos which she serves al fresco to her lucky family! In this episode Jane deals with the responsibility we have as meat eaters to choose the best produce available to us- and Cornwall is full of the freshest, quality produce!
