You'd have to have a heart of stone not to be touched by Kate's enthusiasm for her new way of life (Daily Mail)

Top customer reviews
It starts like a scenario from Location, Location, Location. A London couple want to move to the countryside and raise chickens, but hold on. This is more than a celebrity with Hunter 'wellies playing the farmer. Anyone who has dealt with a local Council will empathise with her frustration that led to writing e-mails to planning officers in the early hours. Then there's literally getting her hands dirty and learning the many skills required of a smallholder.
This is a good read, full of passion and warmth. We need more people like Kate Humble to keep our countryside alive.
Keep scribbling Kate - I am waiting for the next book!
Back in 2007, Kate and her husband, Ludo, left London and bought a house and a few acres of land in Monmouthshire. The early part of this book charts Kate's move to her new home and her experiences of being a smallholder. It then moves on to Kate's filming of the Lambing Live programme and how that inspired them to buy another farm and set up Humble By Nature, a rural skills and animal husbandry school.
I knew that I would enjoy this book, and anyone that likes reading about animals, farming and the countryside will also enjoy it. It's also informative for anyone interested in farm animals, being a smallholder or setting up a similar business. I enjoyed reading about the challenges of setting up Humble by Nature, the various people involved and all the animals.
The book is written in a straightforward and down-to-earth style and Kate's warm, friendly personality shines through. The colour photographs complete the story.
