FANCY YOURSELF AS A FARMER?
Country Living Magazine is arranging for three readers to experience life as an arable, dairy or sheep farmer and work alongside the experts
As part of our Keep Britain Farming campaign, we’ve joined forces with the Country Land & Business Association (cla.org.uk), which represents 29,000 farmers across England and Wales, to offer readers the opportunity to get their hands dirty and try out life on an arable farm in Suffolk, a dairy farm in Cornwall and a sheep farm in North Yorkshire – no matter how little know-how they have. The competition is now closed and we will contact successful applicants by Friday 3 May.
Each entry has raised money for Charity of the Year, the Addington Fund. Three CLA member farmers (pictured below) are each taking on a different Country Living reader for a work placement. It is all about mucking in – and trying a wide range of activities, from feeding the animals and bringing in the hay to making ice cream. A member of the Country Living team is visiting with a photographer during their stay to report on the experience for a special feature – don’t miss the results in the October 2013 issue (on sale 28 August).
