Heartbeat Moment: Anton Baldauf – organic farmer
‘I have always loved gardening. Even when travelling I enjoy working with vegetables and seeing how people in other parts of the world grow theirs. I’m a bit of a sucker for crazy ideas – if I like the look of something then I will definitely have a go at it.’
