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.

Stuart Gibbard is a successful author and journalist specialising in tractors and machinery. He has developed his interest in collecting early tractor literature into a mail-order business which is run by his wife Sue, and he is also one of the organisers of the annual Spalding model-tractor and literature show. Devoting much of his time to historical research, Stuart has talked to many of the men who played their part in creating the machines portrayed in his books. This first-hand knowledge has enabled him to give a fascinating insight into the world of agricultural engineering and tractor development, and his publications include unrivalled histories of Ferguson and Ford.
