A few words about Rob Bookham
Passionate about farming from an early age, Rob studied Agriculture at Plumpton College, under the South Downs near Lewes and Brighton. He soon developed an interest in farm diversification, which led him to forge links with an Italian family who owned an estate in mid Sussex. He became closely involved with their Vegetarian Parmesan production, going on to manage the Twineham Grange Estate. Rob was a pioneer in the late 90's of Farmers' Markets in the Southeast. He is deeply committed to working with other producers in sustaining British Agriculture.
Over the years, Rob has been interviewed on radio and TV many times. Post 'Foot and Mouth', he was involved in a government think tank at Westminster. A staunch promoter of British food, Rob has been a director of Hampshire Farmers' Market since 2008 and is also a keen supporter of FARMA (the farm retail association). He recently appeared on ITV's 'Hungry Sailors' making fresh pasta with Dick Strawbridge.
Rob can be found on most weekends, donning his characteristic brown bowler hat and selling their range of products to the general public somewhere in Sussex, Surrey or Hampshire. In the Summer months, he tours the country with business partner Tim Harrison, selling cheese on toast at County Shows, music festivals and sporting events.
