We love: the way Ben captures the characters (his animal colleagues) and tells the story of life on the family farm – all with the stunning Dorset coast as a backdrop – no wonder he has an instagram following of 112,000 people!
2. Nicky Baker (@therunningshepherdess)

6. Richard (@goprofarmer)
Instagram Bio – Compressing my Life in the sticks in the north of England through a GoPro in to 15 second bursts. Being a hero
We love: the unique and amusing stop motion videos of life on a working farm
Moving some sheep along the road. All was going well and smoothly until this woman in her Suzuki came along who said she thought she was helping!!! If the sheep are behind your car you are not helping, and if the sheep run faster it doesn’t mean you go faster making them go faster. You wouldn’t like to run all that way being chased by me in a car!!!
