Robert Tomlinson grows lusciously pink rhubarb.
Robert Tomlinson is a fourth-generation rhubarb farmer from Yorkshire in northern England. The farm, located in Pudsey, West Yorkshire, has been in the family for more than 140 years. “We’ve always grown rhubarb, since the 1880s,” explains Tomlinson, whose farm produces between 40 and 50 tons of the vegetable each season. “It’s just what we grew up with.”
