My name Emma Burrows and I am Jamie's wife. We have two daughters, Ottalie who was born in 2012 and Imogen who was born in 2015. Being a farmers wife is interesting in so many different ways. We enjoy family time out on the farm, the girls learning about what Daddy does and what farming is all about but we also have a lot of time on our own when the farm demands long hours from Jamie and our employees.
Farming is a way of life, not just a job and when you marry into it, you have to accept it! I didn't grow up on a farm so I've been learning for the last 10yrs and will continue to do so for many years to come!
It's lovely to see the girls growing up with dogs, sheep, cattle, horses and being surrounded by fields of crops. It makes them very grounded and appreciate where things come from.
During lambing in 2015, Ottalie was asked what colour the lamb that had just been born was, and she said 'it was red!' Her audience thought she was pulling their leg but sure enough, having just been born and covered in blood, it was red!
I'm very proud to hear a 3yr old telling me what wheat, barley, oats and oil seed rape get turned into.
Our life is very rewarding but very hard work, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
