Patrick Laurie at Words by the Water Festival
(THIS EVENT HAS NOW PASSED)
Farmer and environmentalist, Patrick Laurie, tells of the highs and lows of setting up a business based around traditional breeds of cattle in the Galloway Hills. He discovers how cows once shaped people, places and nature in this remote corner of south west Scotland. In a world of accelerating cultural change and ecological loss, he faces the challenge of understanding what can be allowed to die and what must be protected.
