So, how did we end up on a 120-acre working farm in the Peak District?
It’s a question we often ask ourselves. Neither of us are from farming families. We’re both proper townies through and through.
Yet in the idle of the pandemic, with the whole world turned upside down, we decided to upturn ours even more. We moved from our comfortable modern house on a smart estate in Oldham, Manchester, to a centuries-old farmhouse surrounded by nothing but fields as far as the eye can see. We weren’t just moving house; we were changing our whole lives! And if our first day on the farm was anything to go by, we might just have made a terrible mistake...
This is the story of our life, from setting eyes on each other in primary school, to being best friends who always made each other laugh, to falling in love and raising our four kids and three giant pigs, to the greener-than-green fields and farm life we live and breathe now.
This is our incredible journey, and it’s only just begun!
Love, Liz and Kelvin, and Marnie, and Milo, and Maximus, and Mateusz – and Ginger the dog and all of our other friendly animals
