AN INTERVIEW WITH MUCK BOOT
BRAND MANAGER MATT

If someone asked me the question, am I an outdoor person? My initial response would be not particularly. Then I think of the pastimes I keep and in one way or another I am always outdoors - it is just in several different environments, whether that is the weekly 5 aside game, my new lockdown pastime of running a few times a week, the family jaunts in the beautiful British countryside or pottering around in the garden, never mind the annual pilgrimage to the Lake District camping each year. I am an outdoor person and I love it...

A LIVESTOCK FARM IS NEVER TRULY HIBERNATING

In the heat of July I think fondly, and often about January bluebird days such as this. July is unrelenting for a farmer. The weeds and grass grow at a nearly unsustainable, breathless rate. They don’t allow for reflection, or planning, or yoga, or reading. They are devoted entirely to manual and endless labor. Every hour of the sunlit day is used and consumed by the greedy July farm...
