VICKY AND JIM’S SUF­FOLK

EADT Suffolk - - Meet the Artisan -

Vicky was brought up near Eye and trained as a pro­fes­sional deer-stalker. Jim, iron­i­cally per­haps given the boar’s propen­sity for dig­ging, trained as a land­scape gar­dener. A shared love of work­ing dogs brought the cou­ple to­gether on a train­ing day in Thet­ford for­est.

They try and find time for coun­try pur­suits, both en­joy­ing shoot­ing in sea­son when­ever pos­si­ble, or per­haps a day’s fishing – you may catch Jim ty­ing a pot-bel­lied pig fly us­ing a boar’s hair, as per tra­di­tion.

“We love cook­ing at home too, but if we go out it might be to the Sturmer Red Lion or the Bull Au­berge in Eye which is run by the par­ents of a friend of ours,” says Vicky.
