He grows. She cooks. Welcome to Agents of Field, an award-winning allotment, gardening and food blog.
The Agents of Field, aka Sophie and Ade, love nothing more than tending their allotment and experimenting in the kitchen with their home-grown produce. A pair of maverick media mavens with over twenty years of professional film and TV production experience between them, they also film, photograph, write and blog about their allotment adventures. They are also Ambassadors for the charity Greenfingers.
With a passion for plants and a background in television, Ade is a bit of an avant-gardener. He is usually found on the allotment, nurturing his fruit, veg and flowers and capturing these magical, muddy moments on film.
In 2014, Ade took his horticultural know-how to the next level by embarking on some further training with The Royal Horticultural Society at Capel Manor, Regent’s Park. He achieved his RHS Level 2 Certificates in September 2015.
These days, you can catch Ade as a Guest Presenter on the QVC channel, where he fronts the Suttons range of gardening products, and he has written for The Garden, Grow Your Own and Kitchen Garden magazines.

Sophie used to travel the world, organising film shoots for a living, before becoming interested in environmental issues and discovering a passion for homegrown food. She’s now a freelance writer.
A staunch advocate of allotments, sustainability and thriftiness, Sophie loves cooking up simple, seasonal suppers with whatever she can grab from the allotment or garden, and sharing her delicious recipes with her loyal blog followers.
Sophie regularly writes about food, gardens, nature and green lifestyle for The Simple Things and Another Escape, and her other work has featured in the Daily Telegraph and the Guardian, among others.
