9780091905071: Scenes From a Smallholding: Essential Reading for Everyone With a Lust for the Country

In 1982, the Griffiths left the security of suburbia to grow garlic in West Wales. This is a funny—and sometimes touching—account of their first three years. They learn lambing and marketing and ploughing and hay-making, they discover the dung-sodden joys of milking and the surreal terrors of bee-keeping. Scenes from a Smallholding is by turns challenging, touching, and informative, but above all, it is very funny.

About the Author:

Chas Griffin was a college lecturer, living in a leafy Nottingham suburb, when he decided to move with his family to a farm in West Wales.

Review:

"I was laughing out loud before I'd got past the copyright page. The book is a gem and Chas is a star in the making. The sort of author Richard & Judy was made for" -- Scott Pack Bookbuyer "... a Bill Bryson "down on the farm"..." -- Alan Gear HDRA
