I am Wilfred Emmanuel-Jones. Born in Jamaica my family came to the UK in the Windrush years in the 1950s. Brought up in inner-city Birmingham, I fulfilled my childhood dream to own a small piece of the British countryside, and when I turned 40 I bought my farm in Devon. Inspired by this and my love and support of British farming, I launched The Black Farmer brand.
But I didn’t stop there. I wanted to be sure that The Black Farmer brand not only celebrates British farming by using only British meat; but also supports the increasingly large community of people who have Coeliac disease, or a wheat and gluten intolerance.
