Kate Humble is a writer and broadcaster specialising in science, wildlife and rural affairs. Together with her husband Ludo she lives in permanently muddy jeans on a smallholding in Wales.
The second series of Kate's popular BBC programme Back to the Land will air in 2018 and will be the latest in a long line of programmes Kate has presented for the BBC including Springwatch and Autumm Watch, Wild Shepherdess, Yellowstone: Wildest Winter to Blazing Summer, Curious Creatures and Extreme Wives with Kate Humble. Her latest book ‘Friend for Life: The Extraordinary Partnership between Humans & Dogs’ is out in paperback.
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 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.
In 2007 she and her husband Ludo moved to a smallholding in Wales and in 2011 set up 'Humble by Nature' a rural skills school on a working farm in the Wye Valley. They live with a variety of feathered and furry livestock and three dogs.
