Emily stumbled across quinoa after she discovered her eldest daughter Rosa, had a gluten sensitivity. After experimenting with various gluten-free ingredients in the kitchen, Emily tried cooking some Peruvian quinoa which Rosa enjoyed, there the idea was born to have a go at growing it on the farm!
After a successful trial crop in 2013, Emily teamed up with The British Quinoa Company who she predominantly grows quinoa for, however, with lots of help from her family she also packages some of it on the farm to sell under the 'Bath Farm Girls' label to the local community.
Also on the family farm is mum and dad Gerald who Emily farms alongside, mum Ros who runs a busy B&B on the farm. Brother James is completing his PhD on precision agriculture, Emily's husband, Eddie, an IT sales manager, and their two daughters Rosa and Charlotte aka the other two-thirds of the Bath Farm Girls!
