    Highgrove House

    I just watched this video on YouTube and thought I should show it here for you to enjoy...

    Highgrove House is the family residence of Charles, Prince of Wales, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, situated south west of Tetbury in Gloucestershire, England. Built in the late 18th century, Highgrove and its estate was owned by various families until it was purchased in 1980 by the Duchy of Cornwall from Maurice Macmillan. Charles remodelled the Georgian house with neo-classical additions in 1987. The duchy manages the estate and the nearby Duchy Home Farm. The house is noted for its extensive gardens which receive more than 30,000 visitors a year. The house and gardens are run according to Charles' environmental principles, and have been the subject of several books and television programmes. Charles frequently hosts various charitable events at the house.

    The Prince and the Biscuit

    Fourteen years ago, the Prince of Wales had an idea for a biscuit, which has since become a multi-million pound business.This biscuit is one of over 130 products sold under the name Duchy Originals. It’s a unique brand in the food world in that it tries to produce things sustainably, and where possible, organically. These programmes look at the rise of Duchy Originals and Simon finds out exactly what you are paying for when you buy a packet of these biscuits. Simon visits Home Farm in Tetbury and talks to the Farm Manager, David Wilson. David talks about the farm and how the oaten biscuit started.

    Survival: Highgrove Natures Kingdom


    The first in-depth examination of Prince Charles work on his estate at Highgrove in Gloucestershire and his organic gardening methods. He has taken Highgrove back to its condition before chemistry intruded into agriculture. A badger sett thrives fox cubs breed within sight of the house barn owls nest in the stables.
