Durwin Banks' family has been farming since 1740. In 1999 he established High Barn Oils on his own farm at Barns Green near Horsham, West Sussex, to produce linseed oil from home grown crops.
"Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food" has always seemed to me, as a farmer, a pretty good mantra for a healthy life. Hippocrates was a wise old devil and he hit on something nearly 2,000 years ago that rings true even today.
Let's look at what's going on: the nation is falling into obesity, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, allergies and all kinds of mental health problems. These are largely due to a poor diet. Meanwhile, we are wasting an estimated 25% of food and eating 25% too much. The NHS is spending £3bn treating diabetes alone. This is all due to food and it does not take a rocket scientist to see that if the equivalent sum were used to encourage a better diet, we could reduce the risk and personal anguish.
