Rent-a-farm campaign for film festival

A GROUP of British sheep, cattle and arable farmers are taking themselves to the Cannes film festival this year in a bid to drum up business for their farms.

They hope to interest Hollywood in the views and scenery they have to offer.

The move follows a pilot database of filmable farms in Wales and the West Country which has now spread to East Anglia.

The 400 subscribers have paid £10 each for inclusion on the list, which will go live on the Internet in two weeks.
