This site has been created to promote the campaign for a plaque, or similar recognition, to Adam Telfer, Old Hemp, and the legacy of the Border Collie. By supporting this campaign, you will have contributed to a permanent symbol of respect and thanks, to the contribution made by Adam Telfer and Old Hemp to agriculture throughout the world.

Thanks to the generosity of our 10,000+ members on facebook, the dedication of the admins, and the work done by everyone in the team… we unveiled a memorial cairn and plaque in the village of West Woodburn, Northumberland (now known as the birthplace of Old Hemp) on Tuesday 8th September 2015.
