An exhibition exploring the under-represented voices and experiences of women in farming.

While life on the land has been well documented from a male perspective, there is very little on record of the lives and views of women in agriculture or where they stand in society.

Contemporary artist, Patricia MacKinnon-Day has collaborated with five Cumbrian women farmers to highlight their stories through a multi-media installation. Individual films play in specially created sheds, where historical agricultural objects are exhibited alongside personal possessions and materials chosen by the farmers.

The work gives voice to the differing passions and frustrations of women who, whether new to the industry or with decades of experience, are all united in their way of life.
