Having worked as a dairy farmer in the UK for 30 years, and achieved the top job in his profession, Philip longed to put a lifetime of experience into practice for himself, instead of being at the beck and call of the landed gentry and their land agents.

The opportunity presented itself in an unusual fashion; the estate he ran was to be split up and sold off, and he was made redundant. Follow Philip's wonderful adventure into the centre of France, to the beautiful dairy farm of Les Marais; 75 hectares of softly undulating land with woods and a 5-hectare lake filled with coarse fish and ragondin (or coypu).

Read on as he tackled the differences in agricultural techniques, whilst learning the language, mastered cooking acceptably for his French neighbours, and found out that falling in love with France was not the same for everybody. In this sequel to his highly entertaining first book, Dairy Cows and Duck Races, Philip Dixon shares the next chapter of his eventful farming career.

● When the functionaries say maybe, it actually means yes
● Financial and medical privacy becomes a thing of the past

● Coping with sudden extreme weather conditions
● Language faux pas!
● Finding true love and a life partner
