About Us

Welcome to "The Great Escape: Farm Edition," the only place where the grass is always greener, even when it's actually just mud in disguise. I was once a humble steward of the land, now your intrepid guide to the hilariously harsh realities of farming life in the UK.

You see, I used to be a farmer, but I escaped a long time ago. That's right, I traded in my tractor for a laptop, my wellies for slippers, and my 5 a.m. wake-up calls for, well, slightly less horrifying wake-up calls. But as I sit here, sipping my tea and reminiscing about the "good old days," I can't help but laugh at the memories of dairy dilemmas, beef battles, and sheep shenanigans.

Oh, and for those of you daydreaming about working outdoors on a lovely warm summer's day, let me offer a gentle correction: imagine that same dream, but now it's freezing, wet, and you're chasing a particularly stubborn cow across a field. Still appealing? Thought not.

This blog is my ode to the farming life – a tribute to the dairy divas, the beefy bruisers, and the sheep that never quite seem to stay where you want them. I'll share tales that'll make you laugh, make you cry (from laughing too hard), and occasionally make you thankful you're warm and dry indoors.

So, buckle up, dear reader. You're in for a ride that's bumpier than a tractor traversing a pothole-ridden field, but infinitely more entertaining. Welcome to the world of farming, as seen through the rearview mirror of someone who managed to escape with their sense of humour intact.
