When Tim and Jo Budden opted to switch from conventional to organic farming in 1988, they wanted to run a business that was ethically conscious as it was sustainable. Sixteen years later, they are operating a small but prosperous organic livestock business that remains firmly in family hands in the picturesque setting of Umberleigh, Devon.
