Farm boy Ben Andrews grew up far away from big cities with all they have to offer a young gay man, but he didn’t let that affect him and now he’s reaping the harvest

Real life

My favourite film is God’s Own Country. I’ve watched it three times, and every time, it gets me a little bit emotional because it’s so real. It’s the most accurate depiction of being gay, being a farmer and being a gay farmer.

I grew up on my family’s farm in Herefordshire, on the Welsh border just north of Gloucestershire. My greatgrandfather started farming here back in the 1930s, so my parents moved here when they got married. Apart from going to university in Edinburgh and having a year off to work in London for a bit, I’ve lived here all my life. When I was a kid, we were never allowed to sit around watching TV or anything inside. I remember being about eight years old, and my dad had me out grading potatoes. I used to get 50p an hour for that, which was good money back then!
