Pictured Mike Duxbury working on the farm. Britain's only 'blind farmer' uses his 'hands as eyes' to carry out all day-to-day tasks -including using chainsaws and axes. See SWNS story SWLNfarmer. Mike Duxbury, 54, lost his vision at the age of six due to glaucoma, and believes he is 'the only farmer with his disability in the UK. Amazingly, Mike still manages to do all the tasks involved in running a successful farm. He uses 'all the kit', including chainsaws, axes to split wood, drills and drives a converted golf buggy as a pick up truck. He uses simple tricks such as laying some wire a few feet away from a gate, so he can feel when he's close with his feet. Despite all his challenges, Mike has gone on to create Inclusivity Farm, near Flitwick, Bedfordshire - a working farm where students can come and learn farming skills, irrespective of their needs. And he said the industry had become an "unlikely leader" for disability inclusion. The farm, which is home to 32 pigs, 30 chickens, six sheep, five ducks and four geese, was designed and built entirely by Mike, who has worked on other farms for years, and his partner Nessie last year. They produce sausages for local shops, pubs and restaurants, and sell up to 200 eggs a week to locals. The farm now also welcomes 15 students a week, as well as allowing visitors to see how it's run and has had enquiries from all over the world.
