Franse Boer leeft in bittere armoede (VK, nl)

Not a light hearted start....

· Inspiration

While preparing and talking about my trip, I come accross many interesting pieces of information about farming in Europe. Some dear friends shared what they read.

A few days ago a piece in The Guardian about staggering numbers of suicide amongst (North American) farmers.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/dec/06/why-are-americas-farmers-killing-themselves-in-record-numbers?lipi=urn%3Ali%3Apage%3Ad_flagship3_feed%3BGxwJ1rhTTuGW3Z%2BvuIBdJA%3D%3D

Today a piece on French farmers living in sheer poverty in the Dutch Volkskrant

Not a light hearted start, of my journey, but certainly underpinning the need to bring farmers and rural living to the attention.
