In 2013 Tom and Matt started The Natural Veg Men, to grow high quality, organic produce in Cheshire. The Veg Men still produce incredible organic veg for local customers and exceptional restaurants, like The Chef's Table, in Chester.
However, you can't keep a good rebel thinker down and a few years later Tom started asking the question; why aren't veg stocks made with mainly vegetables?
This led to the development of Nine Meals From Anarchy and the only Real Veg Stock on the market.
Matt and Tom's convictions about how food should be produced has always been connected with their belief that your meal should have nothing in it that should not be in it. And it should taste fantastic.
Matt, our Supreme Grocer, is the man behind the growing. After university he spent several years working in the jungles of eastern Burma with the Karen people. Seeing how the Karen people worked with the land sparked a fire inside him to grow exceptional, seasonal produce. Matt has drawn great inspiration from Tamsin Borlaze during the time spent working with her at Bosley Patch in Henley on Thames.
Tom grew up on an organic smallholding in Cumbria and along the way ended up working in finance in the Big Smoke. A lover of food and a hater of bland, his aim is to turn the high quality veg they grown into delicacies for the people of the world to eat.
