Peak Land Lives
Peak Land Lives seeks to tell the sometimes harrowing and complex tale of farming and the individual stories of the hardy folks who feed the nation. This project is interviewing many individuals throughout the South West Peak to gather a full picture of the history of farming, examine current issues facing the industry, and also looks forward to the future of farming in the South West Peak.
This project is at once intensely personal and also far reaching in its scope. It is composed of interviews with farming families both young and old and has a goal of combining all of these stories into a comprehensive book on the subject. Videos and photographs will also be available to all through The Farming Life Centre and this website.
Peak Land Lives is led and coordinated by The Farming Life Centre and all proceeds from the resulting book sales will be reinvested back into on-farm projects that support these unsung residents of the South West Peak.
Leave machinery and farm animals alone – don’t interfere with animals even if you think they’re in distress. Try to alert the farmer instead.
When you take your dog into the outdoors, always ensure they do not disturb wildlife, farm animals, horses or other people by keeping your furry friend under control.
