Rock & Roll Farming with James Rebanks The man I’ve wanted to interview since I started the podcast in March 2017 – The Herdwick shepherd himself, James Rebanks.  In the first of two parts, we talk about his family history, Herdwick sheep, his early life growing up on his family farm, and his time at Oxford University.  Look out for the second part next week, where we’ll be discussing his writing career and his new book, English Pastoral.
