Sting Sets Up Fruit And Veg Stall

Rock star STING has put his successful music career on hold to go into the organic fruit and vegetable business.

The former POLICE frontman is supplying a local shop with produce from his organic garden in his country estate in Wiltshire, England and uses 60 acres of his land to grow a wide range of chemical-free vegetables, including tomatoes, onions, potatoes, runner beans, cucumbers and aubergines.

His film-producer wife TRUDIE says,"We decided we wanted to take things into our own hands and make sure that we had food that was safe for our children. We enjoy sitting down and eating what we've produced.

"I feel very angry that consumers just aren't informed of the poisonous pesticides that are put into the soil."
