This year’s Faversham Food Festival Hero

This year’s Faversham Food Hero is Peter Vinson often described as the “Messi of strawberries”, his efforts have resulted in the extension of the strawberry season so that we no longer have to wait until Wimbledon for our first taste and we can enjoy locally grown fresh strawberries into the early autumn. His painstaking breeding of new varieties has brought enjoyment and employment to Faversham.
