Ron Alford

Ron grew up at Parke Farm the current headquarters of River Cottage. He remembers many events in the area, including the day a pilot crashed his plane two fields away from where he was working and the plane catching fire, releasing its ammunition and hitting the farm with bullets. He also remembers the clothes rationing and could only manage to get hold of a smart suit which he then had to wear whilst working in the fields and on the tractor.
