Back to the Land is in the south east of England, meeting local wasabi entrepreneur Jon, who is the only commercial grower in the UK and Europe. Kate joins at a pivotal moment in the business as Jon embarks on a new venture to use the wasabi leaves to market as salad, something never seen before in the UK. Kate also goes in search of truffles as she teams up with business owner Zak and his trusty Labrador sourcing the best English bounty from deep within the New Forest. And we meet ex equity broker Charlie who swapped the city of London for a more natural life and created a company from his love of trout fishing creating a premium product that could outdo the mass-produced trout available in the UK.
