…we are inspired by vintage style – hence the charming old Morris Traveller that features on our cover. ‘Vintage’, of course, covers a multitude of periods and styles, and what appeals to one of us may be anathema to another. Take, for example, Beth Tarling’s cottage garden on page 122.Her love for the 1940s is reflected in every aspect of it, from the old-fashioned, brightly coloured flowers she grows – zinnias, sunflowers, marigolds and dahlias – to the antique tools she uses and the very particular shade of green she has painted her shed in. Claudia Roberts, on the other hand, has decorated her pretty cottage interior in calming whites and creams, with French linens and various brocante finds (page 100).Whatever style of vintage you favour, you’re sure to love…

the good life in the country

SMALLHOLDER ANDWRITER Sally Coulthard Raising your own animals for meat can be a noble task if you’re a carnivore – knowing that the food you are eating has had a life filled with fresh air, rich pasture and gentle handling. With animal welfare and intensive livestock farming constantly under fire, it’s one of the few ways to square eating meat with environmental issues. We’ve raised lambs for the table a number of times; it can be difficult not to get attached, especially for the children. But it’s important for them to understand that meat doesn’t just magically appear on a supermarket shelf. As a family, we have found that raising our own animals has actually led to us eating a much more plant-based diet, with meat as a luxury, not an…

the good life in the city

FOUNDER OF HEN CORNER Sara Ward Cider Sunday, the second Sunday in September, has become an annual celebration in our local community. For many years now, we have invited friends and neighbours to bring their apples – be they home-grown, foraged, windfall or scrumped – for a fun day of washing, chopping, pressing and fermenting. Recent years have seen us hiring a big traditional fruit press and electric scratter, but the very first time we attempted the craft, my husband Andy decided to make a homemade press using plans discovered online and an old car jack. Fortunately, when the pressure was cranked high, causing the jack to slip, our neighbour managed to move his fingers out of the way just in time, but we never risked using the contraption again!
