Thanks to brilliant campaigning organisations in many countries, not least CTC and the Ramblers in the UK the idea that farmers can randomly block or destroy rights of way is declining.
We have a fantastic local charity here called Lasne Nature who have waymarked over 250km of routes even in our small commune which are a great community resource and should draw people to the area.
Clearly this guy never got the memo, this is the most impressive ploughing I have ever come across. Straight across one of our routes. Beautiful lines of course. But even poor Murphy the dog stopped after the third dip which was half his height.
Time to go the long way round!
That farmer clearly takes a lot of pride in his ridging and furrowing! 😉
Looks amazingly neat if you don’t have to cross it! Hopefully when he has seeded we will get back to normal.
I’ll have to ask my partner about this type of ploughing. Yes, he was a weekend farmer in Ontario (in addition working for an oil firm in his full time career before retirement. :))
There doesn’t appear to be much he hasn’t done!
