Farmers might be some of the nicest folk out there … but the one way to get even the nicest farmer fired up is to interfere with him getting his work done.

Actress Emma Thompson and Greenpeace activists learned this lesson the hard way.

The drama all happened in Lancashire, England after Thompson broke a court injunction to stage a protest against fracking on his land.


A couple of quick passes with the spreader spraying manure in a 20′ arc behind the tractor set the protesters running for cover. The farmer even had the foresight to make a complete circle around the trespassers’ encampment, ensuring they had to trudge through the smelly spray in order to leave.

Our guess is that these protesters will think long and hard before they set up shop on a farmer’s land again!
