I met my husband at the Welsh Agricultural College in Aberystwyth. After our marriage in 1991, we took the tenancy of a small hill farm in the Yorkshire Dales.
Richard kept working as a Farm sales rep, as well as looking after our few cows and a small flock of Lleyn sheep and I started breeding Angora rabbits. I joined a cooperative of British Angora producers and opened a craft shop selling yarn and Angora products. I then proceeded to have children!
After child number 4 we were given the opportunity to move to a much bigger farm. This we did but, with some regret I had to close the shop and spend my time with children rather than rabbits.
Fifteen years on, the children are growing up and I am finding time to enjoy Angora rabbits again.
