AS A NATURE-LOVING CITY DWELLER, putting together an edition of ELLE Decoration Country is pure escapism. Braving the Tube and battling London’s busy pavements is definitely easier when your head is filled with images of big skies and open fields. And with thoughts of a slower-paced, more fulfilling way of life, fuelled by the stories of Cornish wildflower farmers Marion Parish and Rebecca Stuart, or Herefordshire biodynamic growers Jane Scotter and Harry Astley (find out more about their experiences in What a way to make a living, p29). Devon-based designer Rupert McKelvie’s lifestyle also induces envy: he designs handcrafted cabins in his barn on Dartmoor, and, when it’s warm enough, starts his day with a swim in the nearby River Teign (read more in The wilderness project, p23). But, as heartening…

i n t o t h e wild

The deer must have been suspended over me for less than a second, but the moment will be with me for the rest of my life. The gunfire startled it. I’d heard it too, but it seemed too far away to trouble the idyll I’d found myself in: a tree-fringed hollow above a river where the emerald under-canopy rippled in a warm breeze, the leaves dappled by a high, hot, early May sun. I lay there, eyes shut, as the rumble of more shots echoed up the river; then came two other sounds, like empty crisp packets being crumpled. The first was a hundred metres to my right; the second, just a moment after, by my ear. My brain scrambled – something was moving at speed towards me. I opened…

what a way to make a living

’THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS A DAILY ROUTINE HERE; EVERYTHING IS BASED AROUND THE EBB AND FLOW OF THE SEASONS‘ JA N E S C OT T E R FERN V ER ROW O RGA N I C FA R M ‘We wanted to grow our own food, but we were very naive about making a living from it,’ says Jane Scotter, one of the founders of Neal’s Yard Dairy. She gave up city living 20 years ago when she bought Fern Verrow, a 16-acre smallholding at the foot of the Black Mountains in Herefordshire that she runs with her partner Harry Astley. Fruit and vegetables are farmed here using biodynamic methods: this holistic way of thinking about food and farming treats animals, crops and soil as a single, united system. ‘It’s a…
