How did a jazz trumpeter and a struggling beginner journalist, both London bred and born, come to have an Organic Market Garden in the early Fifties in a rural part of Kent? Owen and Iris Bryce bought a derelict farm with the idea of having a beautiful rural caravan site. However with Planning Permission taking some two years to obtain they started to grow their own vegetables. A few chickens were bought and then ‘like Topsy – it just grew’. This is the story of not only a change of plan but a change in their way of life – one that no money could ever buy.
