Environmentalists have actually proven that we really do have some of the greenest grass.
It's thanks to a unique combination of soil, limestone, the light, wind, rain, sheep droppings (some people will pay a fortune for 'organic fertiliser' - we don't have to) and other Yorkshire Dales magic.
Large swathes of land remain relatively undisturbed so they're rarely crushed and trampled underfoot. None of the grass is mown too low - usually, it's the sheep doing the mowing.
Dales grass stays green almost all year too - the sun is rarely hot enough to burn it and the snow doesn't lay around long enough to kill it. Look around you in different areas of the Dales and you'll notice at least fifty shades of green, with some areas definitely appearing greener than others.
