Country Life for 22 January 2010
A selection of highlights from 2009 - Pat Pickin's well into her eighth decade and still farming. She runs dairy weaners and has had the same client for 29 years. Colourful childhood memories flow into a varied life farming everything from rabbits to horses, goats and cattle and while her bones carry her forward, she says she'll keep on farming. The Tora track crosses the land of three farming families, who provide wonderful food and rustic accomodation to trampers - and better still they carry your pack.
