Fortnum's Hungry Minds


Julius Roberts

Season 2, Ep. 4

Our guest this episode is Julius Roberts – a first generation farmer who swapped the rat race for an idyllic life of pigs, goats and chickens instead.

Having previously worked at the acclaimed Noble Rot in London, Julius left the city to start a farm in Suffolk. On his journey towards self-sufficiency, he’s amassed over 90,000 followers on Instagram and was named by The Times as “one of the best farmer foodies to follow”. 

Julius joins Felicity to discuss his journey from studying sculpture in Brighton to accidentally buying 17 goats, what a typical day on the farm looks like and whether he misses anything about life in the city. 

Be warned, this episode may tempt you to quit your job and become a farmer.
