Patrick Consicline works on a farm in Devon

Patrick Consicline, an Irish farmer and jockey, who works on a farm in Devon, has shed his clothes for a charity calendar.

Nicola de Pulford, renowned author and photographer, ventured to farms in the UK to capture shots for the calendar series.

The Farmer’s Calendar started in 1999 to “help farming families and put a smile on their faces due to their hardship at that time and subsequently the foot and mouth outbreak”.

“The idea came from me and we started before the WI in 1999. It was because farming in the UK was in such a bad state at that time due to the European export ban.”

“I thought if they won’t have our agricultural products, they can have our boys - the first calendar was male-only.

It has evolved into two versions since its inception – a male-only calendar and an all-female calendar.

“Each year, we support a charity and this year’s is Chernobyl Children’s Lifeline.

” de Pulford explained.

“Anyone who contacts me and is involved in farming in some way, gets to be in the calendars, age is no barrier.”

“The oldest man was 73 and a lady of 63, so far. All the models also get paid, but they don’t usually know this when they apply.” Nicola concluded.

Purchase

The calendars – which cost £7.99 (approximately €9.35) plus p&p - are available to purchase here or by post, to Painsford Manor Farm, Ashprington, Totnes, Devon, TQ9 7EE.
