Posts Tagged ‘“Townies”’
Plans have recently been approved for a load of poly-tunnels at a farm near Faversham in Kent. Surprisingly the residents and local council blocked the planning applications. Possibly on the basis that poly-tunnels are ugly looking things and the “townies” who live, sorry sleep, in the area would much rather prefer to look at pretty lambs gambolling around.
Well sorry folks, but farms are food factories. They are industrial places not picturesque places like you might find in some BBC costume drama. They use huge machinery. Sorry, but all farms look ugly. Put up with it.
Oh. And farms smell and make a lot of noise too. So put up with that as well.
If someone moves to the country from a town, then they must expect to adapt to the environment, not the other way around.
