Overseas Focus on walking company

A former shepherd became the focus of a German national radio station.

Jon Monks, who now runs the company Shepherds Walks, was joined on a trek on Tuesday by journalist Kirsten Zesewitz from Deutchland Radio.

She is working on an agricultural feature, which is due to be broadcast next year.

Jon, from Rothbury, said: ‘The programme is looking at shepherding around the world and they have done a piece on myself, as a former shepherd, who now shepherds people around the hills. She found our company in the internet’.

‘We walked the Ingram Horseshoe, getting a shepherd’s perspective and she really enjoyed it’.

‘It was an interesting day and it was quite emotional at the end and she understood about farming and living in the countryside’.
