ONE of Britain's best known farmers will talk about his new book at an evening meet.

Blandford Books of Broadway are an evening with Adam Henson, who has more than seven million viewers following his agricultural adventures every week on Countryfile and his home in the Cotswold countryside has become the most famous farm in Britain.

Now a Sunday Times bestselling author, he will talk about his new book which explores the relationship between a farmer and his most loyal friend and a celebration of Britain’s working dog breeds.

He said: "For me, the bond I have with Peg, my border collie sheepdog is priceless.

“I know how very lucky I and thousands of other shepherds and farmers, are to have these extraordinarily bright, enthusiastic dogs at our side.

"But we, who work the land and our flock, are not the only beneficiaries of the extraordinary relationship between man and dog.”

In A Farmer and His Dog, Adam Henson explores the unique relationship between a farmer and his most loyal friend.

He points out that it is not just the farmer working the land who benefits from this extraordinary relationship between man and dog.

He goes on to explore the impact made by the UK's hardest working breeds.

From traditional herding dogs and gundogs – such as the labradors he grew up with and the Hungarian wire haired Vizslas like Boo and Olive who live with him now – to assistance dogs, sniffer dogs and even search and rescue dogs.

The evening will take place at the Lifford Hall, Broadway on Tuesday October 10 from 7pm until 9pm.

Tickets are on sale at £20 which will include a drink and a signed hardback copy of “A farmer and his dog”.
