There's never a dull moment for Waipara Valley farmer, educator and foodie Angela Clifford. She grows 60 varieties of fruit and vegetables and has chickens, turkeys, ducks, sheep, bees, cows and pigs. She also runs 'grow your own' food workshops on the family farm and is the driving force behind Eat New Zealand, a not-for-profit moment that aims to connect people to the land.
