This is us, the Rogers family, back in 2015. My husband, 'Farmer Hugh' runs our 300 acre farm, where we grow barley, wheat and oats. We are also part of a conservation scheme, growing wildflowers, grasses and winter birdfood plots. We plant trees where we can and endeavour to plant more hedges were possible. We no longer have our own sheep flock but we work with a local sheep farmer who rents our land for hundreds of his ewe and lambs to graze the green pastures throughout the year.
We have two children, who love the farm but neither of them are showing interest in becoming farmers - they both think it's too much hard work!
I support Hugh with the running of the farm and also take care of our lovely home, happy sheepdog and the children (not necessarily in that order!). I am also writing a self-help book for mothers, with tips on how to balance motherhood and mental health.
