At Farm Blogs from Around the World I'm not in the business of accepting advertising or doing permanent links to commercial sites.

However, one or two do catch my eye that I think are at least worth posting about, and this is one of them.

www.countryfarm-lifestyles is a new site, currently run by an expatriate couple living in Abu Dhabi, but who have bought a small farm in Tuscany, in the Casentino Valley.

According to their founders, www.countryfarm-lifestyles "developed out of a need to unite farmers across the Internet and to give them a niche to advertise."

Country Living and Farm Lifestyles is a farm directory listing farm food, farm accommodation and farm services from farmers worldwide. Advertising rates are 12 GBP a year.

As to their farm in Italy, it is a new acquisition so they can change their lifestyles (having been on the ex-pat circuit for 15 years now), and they have just spent a month there this summer "trying to clear the land of 5 years of brambles, acacia and a myriad of other plants that all seemed to come armed with thorns of all descriptions."

I'm looking forward to reading a blog about their life there when they move there full-time. For now, a taste of what to expect.
