A year on a hill farm
  A Year On a Hill Farm Working Sheepdogs Wildflower Hay Meadows Drystone Walling

Hill farming is not a job but a vocation, notoriously difficult due to the harsh conditions associated with altitude, climate and terrain, and hill farmers, themselves are becoming a dying breed. A comprehensive slide show illustrated with stunning photographs of a year on a traditional Derbyshire hill farm.

Beginning in November with the ewe's being gathered off the moors for mating then withstanding harsh, barren Winters to produce new life in the Spring and a Summer of growth, plenty and frantic preparation in readiness to cope with the next Winter.
