Blackfaced ewes with wind turbines, The Scottish Borders, 2013 from the series Drawn To The Land

Sophie Gerrard

Patricia was not born directly into a farming family. Yet the time she spent on her great uncle’s farm in Perthshire, when she assisted with lambing was a formative experience and she cites him as a significant influence on her own decision to enter farming. Her farm is in the Borders and during the winter she is regularly out on the quad bike checking that no sheep or cattle are in trouble.
