Product description


Whether you are an established smallholder, or just starting to take the first tentative steps towards farming at your home, this book contains a wealth of useful information on all the key aspects of small-scale agriculture. The book covers the rural property - buying a small farm, preparing outbuildings and equipping it with machinery and tools; the land - the kitchen garden, protected cultivation, orchards and pasture; livestock - from bees, rabbits and chickens to goats, cattle and exotic species; and commercial considerations, regulations and organic farming.

About the Author

For thirteen years Katie Thear and her husband David lived on a smallholding in Essex, where they combined small-scale farming with publishing Country Smallholding magazine. Katie has advised on organic and welfare standards for poultry and livestock, and currently lectures in the UK and USA.
