Alpaca Farm Girl Recommends....

Katy from Alpaca Farm Girl has kindly come back to Ian with some great recommendations. Here are her choices for Farm Blogs From Around the World

The Inadvertent Farmer
This is a beautiful blog written by a lady who has various farm animals and a camel. She posts recipes with gorgeous photographs on her blog

St. Fairsted Farm
This blog is about farming, rural issues, and food. She gives good tips and have nice photos.

Life on a Southern Farm
This is a blog that documents many farming tasks and has a real authentic quality to it.

Rooster Hill Farm
This blog has introduced me to some aspects of farming. I particularly loved the visit from the AI (artificial insemination) Guy in his cow painted vehicle.

Honest Farm
Inspirational blog with gorgeous photography, recipes, and great food ideas. She promotes buying your food locally.

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...

Thanks so much Ian for posting my recommendations. I have a new one that I love. It's an alpaca blog from New Zealand called We Love Alpacas. The address is:

About a couple's journey to leave the rat race and move to New Zealand to raise alpacas! Fabulous really.
