One Farmer and His Problems
One Farmer and His Dog portrays a single farmer's struggle to maintain his livelihood as a farmer within a radically changing agricultural industry. Torn between preserving his identity as a traditional sheep farmer in Lancashire, and being forced to develop innovative new income streams just to make ends meet; he must constantly diversify. Consequently, he has become less and less a farmer, but more an entrepreneur working as a sheepdog breeder and trainer, whilst running a small caravan site and producing his own energy through wind power. The work highlights the contradictions and dilemmas produced by the complexity of his position, both emotionally and economically.
