Running through the veins of the most creative entrepreneurs, I think, is a mantra that goes like this, ’ in times of uncertainty, innovate and diversify’ and in the first of my new ‘Creative Minds’ posts, I’ve chosen a special place created by a innovative farming family who have done just that.…

Can a home hold emotion? I don’t mean can it affect how you feel because we know that’s true, but can it actually hold emotion in its walls? If you’ve ever seen the work of sculptor Rachel Whiteread you’ll know this isn’t a completely ridiculous idea.…
