Land Rover & The Prince's Countryside Fund rural bursary Winner
James was awarded the Bursary to help develop his family’s sheep farm and Sheep School project. James’ family-run farm business is very traditional and runs the native local breeds – the Herdwick and the Swaledale. It is operated in an environmentally friendly manner with various conservation projects on the land.
The farm has a huge following on Twitter with thousands of followers from around the world and James and his wife, Helen, are busy developing a ‘The Herdwick Sheep School,’ which aims to bring school groups on to the farm to learn about the ancient traditions and farming techniques of the Lake District.
