Up With the Lark

Joan Bomford / Marlene Sidaway
Joan Bomford wanted to be a farmer so much she always wore a tie like her dad. As an 8-year-old she was the first person in the family to drive a tractor. No job was ever too tough for her. Now aged 83 she's still as active still driving tractors. This is her account of a lifelong love-affair with the land and the people who work on it. Up With The Lark is not only the portrait of a forgotten era but also the story of one woman's overwhelming desire to do the thing she cared about more than anything else - being Farmer Joan.
