Countryfile's Adam Henson's Life on the land - read by Nicky Henson. Adam Henson is the best-known farmer in the UK. After eight years as a roving presenter on Britain's most watched countryside show, 'Countryfile', he now presents his own section of the programme from his farm every Sunday. But after the TV crews leave, Adam returns to the job he loves most - working the land and looking after his livestock. This is a searchingly honest account of the highs and lows of a year of life on the farm. It begins with the joy of new life - lambs in March. But as a promising spring turns into a wet summer, Adam falls behind with his harvest and the year begins to look more grim. Adam inherited not just the farm from his father, Joe, but also his passion for farming. Imagination is essential for the farm's survival and Adam has many an entertaining tale as he explores new sources of income. He explains his commitment to rescuing breeds from extinction, as well as the money-spinning work of hiring oxen out to film directors and training pigs to sit on Hollywood stars. Life on the land is unpredictable, emotional and varied, but never dull. Here, Adam shows us what a farmer's life is really like.
Quatrième de couverture
Life doesn't get much better than this. I'm standing on one of the highest points of my farm on the top of the Cotswold hills, the first rays of spring sunshine beating down on me. The field is empty save for half a dozen of my favourite sheep - the black-faced Norfolk Horn and the shaggy Cotswold Lion. At my feet is Maude, my top sheepdog and a constant companion for 11 years.
OK, so not every day is like this. The sun isn't always shining and the work can break both your back and your heart, but I wouldn't change it for the world. This place is in my blood and I'd be lost without it.
My name is Adam and this is my story.--Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.
