Where the Hearth Is
Kate reimagines whatever we consider ‘home’ – examining her own experiences and expectations, ideals and memories, and considering the views of others living uniquely, extraordinarily, happily.
Kate Humble had what she describes as a ‘proper childhood’ – building camps, racing snails, climbing trees, interspersed with trips to A&E to patch up things when they broke. At the neighbouring farm she learnt to ride horses and developed a lifelong passion for mucking out.
Always a keen traveller, Kate's first travel article was published by ‘The Telegraph’. That same year she got her first job at the BBC as a researcher before moving into presenting. Kate has been presenting programmes and writing articles and books for the last twenty years.
Kate's working farm has recently featured on Channel 5's Escape to the Farm.
