I’m Katrina Sparke, and why i do what i do has become part of the lovely story of how Redleaf Farm came to be.
I grew up with a love of fine food and a keen interest in nutrition. After working as a designer and restauranteur, I wanted to understand more about where food comes from. With a young family i was very keen to give them the best, real, unprocessed and unadulterated food possible. Redleaf Farm developed from there.
I wanted to be able to provide firstly for my family, but I soon realised that what I was producing was good, and so our farming operations grew.
“You are what you eat” has driven my passion for producing magnificent food by taking the adage a step further back… “You are what your food eats”.
Redleaf Farm is now best-known for organic free-range suckling pork, and has an envious client list of some of the country’s top chefs.
I never dreamed i would grow up to be a pig farmer!
