Instagrammer and Farmer - Hole & Sons
Benjamin Hole is a third generation farmer from the time forgotten Isle of Purbeck, on the south coast of England.
Ben has been farming alongside his family for the past seven years and is a passionate custodian of the land. He has been sharing his daily farm life on Instagram for the past three years, showing every aspect of the farming year, from lambing and milking cows to hay making and harvesting crops.
Last year Ben and his family started spinning yarn from their sheeps’ fleeces. Through his photography he was able to show every stage of yarn production from field to needle and through promoting its sale on Instagram, he has shipped ‘Hole and Sons yarn’ all over the world.
Ben is currently renovating a small cottage on the farm, where he lives with a handful of dogs.
Ben will be joining the Instagram panel at Blogtacular.
