How the Countryside Made Me: A Year on Our Farm by Matt Baker
Model Number: 9.78024E+12
Matt Baker finds his calm on the farm. Surrounded by nature with his family, dogs, array of sheep, Mediterranean miniature donkeys and a whole host of wildlife in the farm’s ancient woodland, Matt shows us how the power and beauty of the countryside can bring joy to us all.
Following the ever-changing seasons of the year, we see woodland animals emerge after a long winter of hibernation, and lambs in April. We hear the dawn chorus in the height of summer and see the preparations unfold for the harsh and wild winter months.
Peppered with Matt’s hand-drawn sketches, unforgettable moments from his TV career and stories of a landscape you’ll fall in love with – from its sun-soaked pastures to six-foot snowdrifts – Matt reveals how the outdoors has made him who he is today.
