When moving to Devon or Cornwall in the West Country (or in fact anywhere new) a major task is finding good tradesmen and when owning a smallholding or farm the list of useful contacts is even longer.

Having been approached by countless contractors touting for my business after our arrival at Waytown, a novel opportunity presented itself when our prize winning bull ‘Pastiche’ succeeded in getting his head stuck in the feeding barrier. Our increasingly frantic attempts to free him failed miserably when ‘Fernley’ drove into the yard. His expertise managed to free the proverbial sword from the stone and he’s had my business ever since, and has proven himself many times over since that day.
