The man I’ve wanted to interview since I started the podcast in March 2017 – The Herdwick shepherd, James Rebanks.
In the first of two parts, we talk about his family history, Herdwick sheep, his early life growing up on his family farm, and his time at Oxford University.
Look out for the second part, where we’ll be discussing his writing career and his new book, English Pastoral.
This episode was first published in September 2020 on the Rock & Roll Farming podcast site.
