Haddenham in Transition in conjunction with Thame Cinema for All presents The Moo Man, an award winning documentary, at the Rose and Thistle Pub on Thursday March 27th beginning at 8pm.
"The remarkable story of a maverick farmer and his unruly cows, filmed over four years on the marshes of the Pevensey Levels.
In an attempt to save his family farm, Stephen Hook decides to turn his back on the cost cutting dairies and supermarkets, and instead stay small and keep his close relationship with the herd.
However farmer Hook's plans to save the farm do not always go down well with his 55 spirited cows. The result is a laugh-out-loud, emotional roller-coaster of a journey. "
"Heart warming, a tearjerker of a movie about the incredible bonds between man, animal and countryside."
The film presentation will be followed by a discussion, led by local farmer Michael Haybrook.
Free Entry, but please support the Rose and Thistle by buying a drink at the bar!
