Diary Of Becoming A Farmer. Oh My Goodness....
The Story of a young mans efforts to become a farmer without the aid of inheritance!!
So in my last blog Kick In The Epididymis the Bank Manager had gone away to think about my plans. I was waiting now for the second time to see if they would lend me the money to make my dreams come true.
After a few days I received a phone call. Subject to a few other checks, the answer was YES! Oh. What do I do now. It might actually happen. I'd better find a solicitor who is good at agricultural law.
It's fantastic news, but I can't shout about it too much as after all we've gone through so far, I can't get too excited until it is all completed. Word gets around college that I've bought some land. Not true yet of course, but still they keep quizzing me.
The vendor is quite keen to complete quickly and so am I but the lawyers have got hold of it now and things grind to a slow halt! Loads to think about. Access, boundries previous uses of the land.....
Also now is my chance to deal with the RPA. So far very efficient, but I am braced for that to change.
I'd better start thinking about the next crop as it's going to need sowing soon, if the lawyers let us get on with it.
