A Devon smallholder has planted an olive grove with the aim of cashing in on global warming.
Mark Diacono is expecting a viable business
Mark Diacono, 39, has planted 120 trees on his 17-acre plot near Honiton in east Devon.
He is also growing almonds, apricots and persimmon and even plans to experiment with exotic paw paw.
Mr Diacono aims to bring in his first olive oil within the next seven years but just in case, he has planted an olive species used to frost and snow.
Environmental consultant Mr Diacono said the olive grove was a way of taking advantage of the climate change which was taking place.
The UK Climate Impacts Programme has said by 2080 the south-east of England could become on average 5C warmer in summer.
