Amanda Cuthbert

Amanda Cuthbert started her working life in the theatre before becoming a founder member of Sky Television, writing, presenting and producing programmes. Sixteen years ago she left the TV life behind to run a small farm in Devon; having been concerned about environmental issues since childhood, she put her ideas into practice – growing organic vegetables, leaving fields unsprayed and raising sheep, pigs and hens organically.

Author of The Dreamer’s Guide to Running Holiday Accommodation (Breese Books) and co-author of The Briefcase and the Baby: A Nanny and Mother’s Handbook (Mandarin) she now works as a writer and editor, and raises chickens and grows her veg in south Devon.
