Description

A Farm of Our Own describes a ten-year adventure in the life of the author and his then partner - an account of running a small farm as a hobby. It is an honest, intimate, light-hearted and often amusing tale. Recognising that many people dream of "getting away from it all" or of living the "good life", the book is intended to appeal to both the country lover and city dweller alike. The book unravels some of the mysteries of farming and country life. It shows how the author, a self-confessed townie, came to terms with many unfamiliar circumstances in the country. For the country dweller there are several personalities they may recognise, and episodes to which they are likely to relate. Whatever the readership, hopefully they will feel involved and be able to laugh, sympathise, and be angry at - and with - the author. The text describes the time the author's pet "house" cow was diagnosed with mad cow disease, the wasteful burning of two acres of soggy grass and the birth of dozens of farm animals.

Author Biography

Graham Irwin was born and raised in Hertfordshire. Having lived in various parts of London he moved with his then partner to Bedfordshire where they felt drawn to buy a tiny farm. Although no longer farming the experience had a profound impact on his life. Graham now runs an IT, web design and business consultancy from his present home in rural Hertfordshire. His friends describe Graham, amongst other things, as a gentle, spiritually aware, compassionate and gifted leader.
