The Brill family
Roger is the fourth generation of the Brill family to farm. The family business was started by his great grandfather, Edward Brill, in the late 1880s. They were mixed farmers who farmed pigs as well as growing fruit and vegetables, which were then sold in the old Covent Garden market. The original family farm was based near Maidenhead, but was subsequently developed, and so after studying Horticulture at Writtle College, Roger started afresh at the current site, Peterley, in 1982.
