In 1999 Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall decided to quit the bustle of London and take on the life of a smallholder at River Cottage, a former gamekeeper's cottage in Dorset. The aim: self-sufficiency; to grow his own vegetables and raise his own animals for food.
Over the years several series have been produced covering his experiences and watching his rural empire grow.
[ Note - This show is an attempt to consolidate all the separate River Cottage series into one. It is currently a work in progress so expect more changes.
