Patrick Laurie is a wonderful writer. He has written a hymn of love to his native land — James Rebanks

Turning his back on the unnatural scale and controversial techniques of modern farming, Patrick Laurie sought to reconnect with the land of his native Galloway and invested in a herd of traditional Riggit Galloways.

These cows begin to dictate the rhythm of Patrick’s life, and as he discovers the techniques and traditions of a passing rural heritage he comes face to face with some of the most pressing questions of our time. Join Patrick as he takes on the mantle of caring for a remote landscape and the animals who inhabit it in Native.
