Marcus Mumford eyes a life on the farm

Marcus Mumford is planning to go back to college - to study farming.

The Mumford + Sons frontman, who married Hollywood star Carey Mulligan on a farm in south England in April (12), previously took a course in classics at Edinburgh University in Scotland but dropped out to pursue his music career.


Now he wants to start studying for a degree in agriculture via the U.K.'s remote-learning organisation Open University.


Mumford tells rock magazine Q, "I'm thinking of doing an Open University degree, but I also really want to study agriculture because I'd really like to know how to work on a farm. I just find it so amazing, so fascinating."
