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.
AGENT ADE – Garden Writer
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.
He has written for RHS The Garden and Grow Your Own magazines and currently writes a monthly blog for Kitchen Garden.

AGENT SOPHIE – Editor, Food Writer
Sophie used to travel the globe, organising film shoots for a living, but now she writes. Her food and lifestyle work has been published in the Daily Telegraph, Guardian and The Simple Things. She loves experimenting in the kitchen, working all kinds of culinary alchemy with the fruit and veg of Ade’s labours.
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.
But their roles aren’t set in stone. They like to mix things up a bit. Sophie grows a mean pea-shoot and Ade’s pickled beetroot is legendary. (Crazy cats.)
