Sam Vincent – My Father and Other Animals

Sam Vincent – My Father and Other Animals

Whether castrating a calf or buying a bull – or knocking in a hundred fence posts by hand when his dad hides the post-driver – Sam’s farming apprenticeship is an education in grit and poop. But there are victories, too: nurturing a fig orchard to bloom; learning to read the land; joining forces with Indigenous elders to protect a special site. Slowly, 

Sam finds himself thinking differently about the farm, about his father and about his relationship with both.

What passes from father to son on this unruly patch of earth is more than a livelihood; it is a legacy.
