Hobby farmers now account for the ownership of the majority of farms under 40 acres, over 100,000 such farms in Britain alone. It features frequent articles in the press on hobby farms, downsizing, living a more nature-centred life and growing your own food. It gives enormous feature attention in the press, radio and television. This is a book that will be sold on the back of such television series as Jimmy's Farm (BBC 2). Most farms are now sold to people whose main priority in country living is a lifestyle choice and making a profit is not the priority. Willy Newlands can guide you through how to farm your land, your livestock and your orchards for maximum quality of life. Hobby Farm is an invaluable guide to country living. It takes you through Artichokes and Asparagus; Beekeeping and Ducks; Goats and Pheasants; Pigs and Poultry; Potatoes and Rhubarb.
