THE ORGANIC FARMER
Quentin Jones, Nirvana Organic Farm
Quentin used to be a used car dealer before challenging his lifestyle by becoming a self-sufficient organic farmer with his partner Deb.
“Food is your life”, he says. “I nowadays live the life of a mid-European peasant and I’m quite proud of it.”
“Nirvana provides a wonderful lifestyle for us. It is satisfying work flanked by our faithful hounds, our own fresh food, and food to preserve, fruit, wines and beer, great spaces to relax and watch the antics of the poultry.”
Quentin and Deb have been using Bio-Dynamic methods of farming now for 18 years. They use very little water by following these methods. Their farm is a wonderful balanced ecosystem and has won many awards for its innovative practices.
“Nirvana may not fit into the normal category of a garden or farm, but it’s a place to work, relax and enjoy life…”
