“Farming is still a funny Business’ is being compiled by journalist Andrew Arbuckle and he needs around 300 stories for the publication, which is due to go on sale in the autumn in conjunction with the RSABI.
It is hoped the initiative will also raise the spirits of farming and crofting communities at this very challenging time for everyone and encourage people to connect by sharing their humorous memories and entertaining tales.
Mr Arbuckle is appealing to people in the farming community of Dumfries and Galloway to contact him with stories for the book, which will be sold with all profits going to RSABI. It will follow on from his previous publications, “Farming is a Funny Business” and “Farming Facts and Fake News”, which he produced with his brother John (both pictured above) and which, in total, raised £72,000 for the RSABI’s work.
Appealing for new contributions, Mr Arbuckle said: “The type of stories needed for the book can be very wide-ranging – from quirky tales of things which happened in years gone by to wry observations from people in this exceptional industry. More than ever before there is a need to be able to connect with people and relax.”
