Episode 77: The Wild Farming Life: Farming in Harmony with Nature with Lynn Cassells of Lynbreck Croft. Lynn’s takeaway message from this episde - looking back doesn’t have to mean going back. Let the land do the leading and don't be afraid to rewild yourself along the way. This episode we discus how to rewild the land and yourself by farming in harmony with nature and leaning into regenerative practices that create habitat connectivity. Lynn Cassells, alongside her partner Sandra Baer, owners of Lynbreck Croft, had a shared dream of living closer to the land. And while the pair never meant to be farmers, they found themselves called to the task of stewarding a 150 acre croft in the Highlands of Scotland in 2016.
