All sounds so familiar, could be talking about this farm. It is criminal what they are doing, ruining family farms and our lives.
They are desperate for a continuation of non-farming, farming subsidies.
Yes exactly. How can something go so far off track? I really loathe them both with a passion.National Trust are like the RSPCA, a once great organisation that was highly regarded and loved in the country but one which I would now not give any support to at all.
Both driven and controlled by fundamentalists …….. with the emphasis on mental
To me its a consequence of our education system, we used to turn out vast quantities of people with practical skills, who had either done full time vocational courses or day release. These were the people who then looked after the land, the buildings etc. Now we turn out vast quantities of people with degrees in biological sciences etc who know their job is to carry out endless studies into the effect of doing nothing. In another 20 years when the ground nesting birds have disappeared due to rewilding they will have all the information at their finger tips to pinpoint exactly when it all went wrong.Yes exactly. How can something go so far off track? I really loathe them both with a passion.
Pentire, that’s where the Jane’s boys farmed but that’s Wadebridge way not Bude end of North Cornish coast.
Reckon they must have improved it a bit at those rates compared with last time I was in the kitchen
Can't like that! A bit too close to reality. I fear what is going to happen next.The locals know how badly the tenants were treated. Trouble is that there will be fewer locals as all this inward migration for "lifestyle choices" continues.
A beautiful farm made to go downhill. Doubtful the donor had the NT's changes in mind when donating. Where's its endowment gone to, I wonder? Why wasn't it used to improve the place when it was tenanted?

Has the NT ever sold any land?
I'm sure in order to justify their actions they would say leasing is different to selling.They used to sell stone barns for conversion and a few acres on 99year leases.
I saw that. It crossed my mind to wonder whether your £5 tree would be planted in a wood that had previously been clear-felled, so they would be required to re-plant it anyway.And I saw last night on the tv, the bloody NT asking for donations to plant a tree at a fiver a pop!!!!!
