Countryfile, time to knock it on the head.

Recommended Posts

I try to catch Countryfile every week, as it's very keen on showing us the latest high-tech agribusiness scheme and I like to keep an eye on stuff like that. I particularly remember one dairy farmer with a mobile milking parlour to be towed out to the fields, and he intended to export raw milk to China. There's all sorts of ridiculous stuff like that.

Then you've got Matt showing off the farm he supports with the money he gets as a TV presenter and something about someone's rural diversification . Because it's surely a good thing that you can't make money just by growing crops and must do chainsaw carving or run a hang-glider school to keep hold of the place.

So for me it's part lifestyle aspiration and part cringe-making car-crash TV.


At least it's February and they've stopped doing the calenders.

Give it 4 months and the 2017 calendar will be upon us.

Still a load of spoon whittling, man bun, compost toilet rubbish I see.
