[tab title=”About the Book”]

[dropcap size=”220%” bgcolor=”theme”]T[/dropcap]his is the illustrated autobiography of Geoff Tomlinson. Highly regarded in the agricultural community, Geoff has been advising farmers as a rural solicitor for the last 36-years. This book has been written to mark his retirement and retells with humour many anecdotes. The book contains a range of images and line drawing illustrations that will make this popular reading, especially for those in the farming world.

“Geoff’s true passion for the rural community has always set him apart. His retirement means the loss of a great servant to the rural community. At least with this book we can still share in his famous tales.”
Mark Pearson – Senior Agricultural Relationship Manager, Natwest, Lancaster

“Geoff is one of the best known Rural solicitors. He has the uncanny ability to make clients immediately feel at ease with his infectious personality, professionalism and knowledge, but above all, his ability to relay an amusing story or two.”
Richard Furnival – Partner, Armistead Barnett Chartered Surveyors and Auctioneers, Garstang

“As a rural solicitor who has stayed grounded to the benefit of his clients, Geoff is a man who has seen most, if not all of life and certainly has an anecdote for every occasion.”
Robert Sheasby – NFU North West Director

“As a rural solicitor who has stayed grounded to the benefit of his clients, Geoff is a man who has seen most, if not all of life and certainly has an anecdote for every occasion.” Robert Sheasby – NFU North West Director “In these changing times for the professions, it is hard to believe we will witness his like again for some considerable time; an outstanding ‘farming’ lawyer with the personal qualities of Geoff appearing only once in a generation.”
William Richmond – Consultant, Towers & Gornall Accountants, Garstang
