Meet my Neighbours

My friends and neighbours (500 m. away) here in France have a farm (they have a herd of about 35 cows and they make cheese). I'm here at their house and the discussion of the day is: should they increase production, raise prices or both!

They've also started a new blog http://fermedeshauteschaumes.blogspot.com/ and I'm alarmed to see some very unflattering photos of me as we killed and butchered the two pigs our two families share.

The guy with a green beanie, a long green coat and looking confused is an American English teaching assistant who is spending a year our local high school, after 2 years with the Peace Corps in Togo.

A big ask I know, but if you can, please help me support my time on 'Farm Blogs from Around the World' by buying, reading and blogging/reviewing my book:

A Place in My Country: In Search of a Rural Dream

It's about urban downshifting to rural England (and a bit more).

I don't take any advertising on this site but your support would help me show my wife that this blog project is more than me just pursuing my obsessive interest in all things farming/gardening/smallholding!

Please support your local independent bookshop, but (yikes!) dare I say it...
