Kate Humble is a farmer, writer and television presenter.
Born in 1968, Kate was raised in rural Berkshire, where she lived next to a farm.
She had what she describes as a ‘proper childhood’ – building camps, racing snails, climbing trees, interspersed with trips to A&E to patch up things when they broke.
At the neighbouring farm, Kate learnt to ride horses and developed a lifelong passion for mucking out.
At 18 she left school and home and worked odd jobs for a year to fund a year travelling in Africa, which, she says, taught her far more than she would ever have learnt at university.
On her return to the UK, she got her first job in television as a runner and met Producer/Director Ludo Graham who she married in 1992.
She travelled whenever she had the opportunity and in 1996 had her first travel article published by The Telegraph.
Also in 1996, Kate landed her first job at the BBC as a researcher on ‘Animal Hospital‘ and then ‘The Holiday Programme‘.
Kate Humble has been presenting programmes and writing articles and books for the last twenty years.
