I have worked as a freelance journalist covering farming, food and rural issues for nearly 15 years, and although I am mainly a feature writer, I also write news stories, profiles and take all photographs to accompany my work.
Below are links to some of the features:
Snow Melts - Dirt Doesn't - Investigating how enterprising farmers in the West Midlands are using their hilly landscapes to open mountainboarding centres.
Home Cooking in Louisa's Larder - A report on a thriving Herefordshire business that is busy reaching new markets.

Izzies Catering Success - As agriculture changes and conventional food production becomes ever more unprofitable, it is often farming wives who are leading the way in rural diversification.
