Every day, Lea walks her two young children up the hill to “see the horses”. In rain or shine, they provide steadfastness with their constant presence. Their strength is palpable and their magnificent form always inspires Lea to pick up her pen.
On the other side of town sits one of the oldest continually running polo fields in the nation. Packing a picnic for the match still provides the perfect mix of formality and sportsmanship on summer Sunday afternoons. Foxhunting, albeit technically a “drag hunt” now, occurs every autumn under a brilliant sky, and celebrates a love of hounds, horses, tradition, and open land. Historic homes are named for the ring-necked pheasants that populate their estates, and crab-apple orchards grow on steep hillsides, bordered by split rail fences.
Lea’s Farm and Field Collection is an ode to country life, land stewardship, and the richness of human life when intwined so deeply with the environment.
