A fill-in job in a restaurant kitchen led Art College graduate Julius to a baptism of fire pulling 18-hour shifts in the early days of Noble Rot’s first restaurant. Though he decided that cheffing wasn’t for him, it instilled in him a love and respect for produce and set him on the road to becoming a full-time grower; a journey which he shared on Instagram. His evident talent as an educator and communicator quickly won him thousands of followers and in due course led to a Channel 5 TV series A Taste of the Country and to his new book The Farm Table.
