We are based on a mixed arable and stock farm on soils overlying chalk, ours is a family business, and this website is a small window on what happens on our farm around the year.

This site originates in a series of articles written for the Durweston News, our local parish newsletter, which was published monthly until 2015.  An edited version now appears in glossy print in the Forum Focus every month,  and this site is simply an alternative way to access the photographs, and commentary, which if it occasionally sounds a little opinionated, reflects only the views of the author, at times it may need to be taken with a pinch of salt……..

The author welcomes comment and discussion via the message box at the bottom of each page.

  1. Loved seeing the photoes and all the articles – it is the first thing I read when I get the Durweston News. How farming has changed and yet the buildings etc have not. I have several old photoes of the farm and wondered if you would like them please let me know. I remember the post war years and the “changeover” to mechanisation.and how it affected one particular farm hand (humurous). If I ever get round to [putting words to paper I will send them to you. Through Google Earth I can revisit many of the old haunts. Thank you once again for allowing me to revisit.

  2. I would like to use one of your images for a Country Fair programme..might this be possible and who do I ask for permission and how can I get a hi res version for this.
    Many thanks in advance for your assistance.
    Best regards
    Wendy
