The heartwarming story of the ups and downs of life on a farm, from much-loved shepherdess Emma Gray
AS SEEN ON BBC TWO'S HIT TV-SHOW 'THIS FARMING LIFE'
Emma Gray was just twenty-three when she moved to an isolated farm in Northumberland, becoming Britain's youngest solo shepherdess. In the seasons that followed, Emma fell in love with its rolling fields, sycamore trees and sturdy farmhouse, where she tended her sheep and trained her dogs - and even found romance along the way.
But when Emma finds herself suddenly alone again, heartbroken, mourning the loss of loved ones and recovering from a serious accident, she can't help but wonder if her isolated existence is still such a sensible idea. Even if she could recover, how could she make a proper living on Fallowlees Farm?
In her heart-warming new book, Emma reveals how she picks herself up from these setbacks to become one of the country's most successful trainers of Border Collies, and how she - much to her surprise - finds true love and lasting happiness where she least expects it.
Written with warmth and humour, My Farming Life is testament to the healing power of nature, and a joy for anyone who's ever dreamed of living closer to it.
Emma Gray is a young shepherdess who has lived on the National Trust farm Fallowlees in Northumberland for ten years, joined by her husband Ewan and their baby Len. She is a record-breaking trainer of sheepdogs, and competes in trials with her own dogs. Emma has starred in ITV's celebrity shepherding contest FLOCKSTARS, BBC One's COUNTRYFILE and BBC Two's THIS FARMING LIFE.
