Abby Allen

Abby Allen is a food writer and ardent campaigner for slow, seasonal produce. Living in rural Devon Abby has spent the last 10 years behind the scenes of some of the country’s most recognisable ethical food brands including River Cottage and Pipers Farm. Her passion for sustainability, and specifically seasonality, is at the heart of everything she does, using her words to persuade others to reconnect with small-scale family farms and enjoy the magic of nature.
