Farmer releases song to support local school

Somerset farmer Ben Turner has launched a bid for the Number 1 spot, with a fun song that’s got a distinctly rural theme.

The band Made in Camelot has written, performed, recorded and released A Farmyard Fable, which tells the story of a farmer who creeps into his barn one night to find an animals’ party in full swing.

Ben teamed up with Lycia Atkinson, Simon Hawksley, Tim Hale and Haydn Wood to raise money for North Cadbury Primary School, which needs a new classroom.

The idea began when one of them won a studio recording session at a charity auction.

The video was filmed at Ben’s farm in Queen Camel with the help of local lighting and camera experts and a friend with experience in directing.

“We wanted to have some fun and raise money at the same time,” the band said. 

The single is available for download from iTunes, priced 79p.
