We moved to the countryside and gave up our stressed-filled city lives in exchange for wellies, nature, fresh air and sustainable living. We’ve called this project My Home Farm.
After a year-long house hunt, which took us 14,500 miles across the length and breadth of the United Kingdom, we found our ideal property in the rural British countryside surrounded by rolling hills and lots of wildlife, and so far there hasn’t been a dull moment.
We moved into a renovated Victorian farmhouse (built around 1850) along with a 2-acre field and our lives have changed completely. The plan is to be as self-sufficient and eco-friendly as possible, with a focus on personal health and well-being.
With that in mind, we’ve taken on many home improvement and DIY projects to achieve our goal.
Most things are still new to us and there have already been numerous challenges that we’ve had to overcome (like rebuilding a Victorian chimney on our house that was in urgent need of repair), but progress has been steady and many lessons have been learnt.
Watch and follow us as we discover home DIY, sustainable living, making our home as green, eco-friendly and sustainable as possible, growing and making our own, along with our success and mishaps.

I have been the managing editor of some of the world’s best known technology, lifestyle, travel and health publications.
Before moving to the countryside, my wife and I ran an award-winning publishing and communications agency for 15 years, during which time we were extremely fortunate to work with some of the world’s largest companies and brands.
We delivered countless communication campaigns for companies and brands such as BP (British Petroleum), Chanel, Cummins, Danone, Guerlain, Lancaster, Louis Vuitton, Nestle, Michelin, Sony and Unilever.
In the healthcare sector, we dealt with all the largest pharmaceutical companies: Abbott, AbbVie, AstraZeneca, Bayer, Boehringher-Ingelheim, GSK, Merck, Mundipharma, Novartis, Pfizer and Sanofi.
My extensive professional experience allows me to blend company, product and brand expectations with objective reviews and write-ups that readers and viewers can believe and trust.
This balance of editorial integrity coupled with the knowledge of brand messaging and communication is a key and unique ingredient that many sites or platforms cannot provide.
