Rock & Roll Farming #60: Featuring Dorset sheep farmer Jemma Harding

 

This week Will travels down to Wimborne in Dorset, in the south West of England, to talk to sheep farmer Jemma Harding.

 

They talk about the perception of sheep farming as cool at the moment, and how the reality can be very different, before hearing about her early life growing up on the family farm and how her initial love of sheep developed.

 

They discuss her time at university studying photography, and how she combined it with farming, before hearing about how a night out at an MTV party in Birmingham led ultimately to a job offer and an eventual role interviewing musicians and celebrities around the world.

 

We then hear in depth about the accident that happened to her in 2008, when she was knocked off her bike by a lorry in central London, and the horrendous injuries she sustained.

 

She tells Will about the operations she went through, and how through sheer determination she was out of hospital in just five weeks, and how her collie puppy and horse helped her through the long nights suffering with PTSD.
