Finn’s World Cooking, Baking and Farming Playlist



Cooking, Baking and Farming Playlist

For me, cooking is active and exciting so there is a lot of classic rock in this playlist. But baking is something I either do early in the morning or late at night so a more relaxed vibe is in order.

I was shipped off to rural Canada for the summer of my 16th year and so began my 10-year (so far) love affair with country music. The farming playlist has some of my absolute favourite songs, frequently inflicted on the lovely Fiona of Whitehill Eco Farm as we worked in the polytunnels.
