About The Book

This book is written for the first-generation farmer but at the same time will appeal to a much wider audience, including established farmers.

It provides readers with the information they need to commit themselves to a farming life even if they lack experience and finance. It encourages would-be farmers to have a go at farming on their own, whether it be a hobby farm, part-time farm or a full-time enterprise.

Covers a wide range of topics, from renting land and buying a field, as well as all the livestock enterprises, arable farming, haymaking, silage making and much more.

A chapter is also included on how to obtain planning permission for a mobile home and permanent dwelling in a greenbelt area, along with how to go about building - invaluable for those that need to live on the premises.

What makes this book unique is the added humour. If you read John's four hilarious school farm books, you will have come to expect his wonderful sense of humour to shine through.
