The Story so Far
Seeking a worthwhile life in the countryside, we set our hearts on being farmers. The odds were stacked against us – by our mid-20s, neither of us had done a day’s farming.
On one special farm, we discovered wildflower meadows, wooded pastures and boggy fields with shrubby willow. Born in the 80s, our picture of farming was the tidy green fields that fill our island. This special farm was a relic. Wildlife had already suffered a massive decline as agriculture ‘improved’.
We want the old-fashioned to be the new normal. Our farming story so far has been about bucking the trend and sticking to our morals.
We lived for 5 years in a yurt. 2020 sees us go into a third year in a static caravan. It hasn’t been easy.
