Over the Farmer's Gate

Roger Evans has built up a large cult following over the last 25 years with his hugely popular column in the Dairy Farmer, for which he won the prestigious PPA Columnist of the Year Award in 2000. He also has a huge following every Saturday in the Western Daily Press.

An articulate Shropshire dairy and poultry farmer all his life, Roger Evans' lively prose sheds light on the joys and daily challenges of his work.

He is well-informed, realistic and funny in his comments about all aspects of his life as a farmer today.

Popular at all the agricultural shows and a hot-ticket as an after-dinner speaker, Roger is widely regarded as one of the best modern spokesmen for the British farmer.

Press reviews

Reviewed in Cow Management in September 2010

'The book is set to fly off the shelves. Highs and lows of daily life on a Shropshire dairy farm.'


Reviewed in Teme Valley Times in December 2010

'A splendidly quirky and nicely written collection of short stories.'


Reviewed in New Zealand Dairy Exporter in August 2012

'Evans never drops his ‘tell it like it is’, farmer-to-farmer approach when it comes to vexing subjects and the occasional moment of glory.'
