This is the start of a blog, one designed to enthuse, inform and comment on all things rural and agricultural.

It is brought to you by Dorothy Tull [nee Buckeridge] – the mother of one of the greatest agriculturalists of all time – Jethro Tull. Jethro Tull has on occasion been called the father of English agriculture so does that make Dorothy the mother of agriculture by default?

Dorothy currently feels so strongly that both farmers and farming are constantly misrepresented she has taken off her pinny (apron) and picked up her pen.

Dorothy is learning to cope with the technology, the language, and hardest of all – 21st Century life both on the farm as well and in society in general.

Now she is to adapt and speak out in public will her life ever be the same?

  1. Keep writing: you do it well. Different fields but similar visions. (And the wheat round here is still part-harvested. At least it is standing).

  2. Thank you for your kind words. I understand a lot of the wheat in Cornwall has sprouted in the field which is disastrous for the farmers.

  3. You are presumably speaking from beyond the grave?

  4. Well, I believe I am now in my fourth Century, make of that what you will.

  5. Hello Dorothy,

    Having reviewed your Arcadian Advocate blog and established your links with the ‘outdoor life’ I wondered if you may be interested in sharing the details of or taking part in a nationwide search to find the best things about the English countryside… with some fantastic prizes for your readers on offer.

    Managed by Scrumpy Jack cider, we are asking residents, visitors and tourists to tell us what they love most about the English countryside using the official Facebook Fan page http://www.facebook.com/scrumpycider.

    Each week we’ll be selecting the most popular suggestion and awarding that person with a crate of Scrumpy Jack Cider. The person receiving the most votes by 11th June wins a whole year’s supply!

    I can send through more information or images if you are interested, and would appreciate your consideration for a mention. All mentions will get links back from our Facebook Fan page (on the links page).

    Many thanks
