One of England's oldest farmers is still hard at work on his farm after nearly 60 years in the business. <br />
<br />
David Palmer, 86, gets up at 5am to milk his cows and is busy until late into the evening tending to his 170-acre Dorset farm.<br />
<br />
The farm doubles up as a park for families to come and visit to see the animals and spend some time in nature. <br />
<br />
David, who was once almost trampled to death by a bull, is helped by his daughter Sandra and son Philip.<br />
<br />
He says he does not like going on holiday as that takes him away from the farm.
