In 1998 Hugh moved into the original River Cottage in Dorset, to start growing and rearing some of his own foods. River Cottage has since moved on, and grown.  Hugh and his team of food experts operate out of River Cottage HQ, a 17th century farmhouse and 60 acres of land based at Park Farm near Axminster. HQ is now a venue for courses and events following the River Cottage food philosophy, and celebrating the very best local, seasonal food.
