Anna Birch Biography

Anna Birch

As a six-year old, Anna rescued squashed hedgehogs and devoured the James Herriot books, thinking it all sounded marvellous. 

As a grown-up, and after a couple of detours (philosophy and psychology at University College, Oxford and a Territorial Army commission at Sandhurst), Anna is now a real-life vet and a natural story-teller.

She lives on her farm in North Dorset with her husband and young children, two Red Devon bulls, 50 Red Devon cows and their followers, 17 Gloucester Old Spot pigs, 20 Wiltshire Horn sheep, four rescue chickens, two Jack Russell terriers, one Labrador and her parents-in-law.
