Will Rawlings began his fascinating talk on the progression of farming in his lifetime, having just that morning, dismounted from a very sophisticated, computer-controlled tractor. He began, with a sad reference to the demise of his uncle, who was mortally injured, when his tractor overturned. Will’s father then decided to return to their farm, from Government service to agriculture in Northamptonshire and so at the Hollins, he set up the family home.

will set about following his father’s example of modernising and developing the farm. He even had experience of working with Shires and Clydesdales, but his father gave him the go ahead to introduce modern tractors and even the innovation of introducing silage

Will then led us through his own life on the farm, which included many youthful adventures, such as climbing trees and occasionally falling into stables, such as one housing a bull. Will’s style of presentation instilled an intimate understanding of what it was like to grow up on a farm and how more modern practices steadily evolved over the decades. From primary school, we then accompanied him to Whitehaven Grammar, where he mainly liked Geography and History, but his dyslexia hampered his progress in Mathematics and Science. Although he had dreams of being a professional mountaineer, he was guided towards agricultural studies, where he excelled and then began work on several farms.


Returning to the family farm, where his family had been tenants since the sixteenth century


harvesting, although this was not encouraged by everyone. Over the years, Will explained how he enlarged the family acreage by incorporating smaller farms and increasing his animal stocks. He related, that throughout good and bad years, he kept on increasing production, at the same time caring for the land, which he loves so much. Two such examples of national tragedies which beset the farm, were the fallout from the Chernobyl accident and mad cow disease.


In conclusion, Will described how over the past decade, he was instrumental in setting up the not for profit Cumbrian Farmer Network, to help fellow farmers. He sees its biggest value as being an organisation for other stakeholders such as the National Park, Rivers Trust and the National Trust to work together to the mutual benefit of the whole rural environment.
