Synopsis

Garden Farming by Hugh Lanham

The joy of really fresh, home-grown food seduces many of us. Hugh and Claire Lanham have run various miniature smallholdings for over thirty years, some in gardens and others on allotments. They are not self-sufficient or truly organic but they do produce a great deal of very good meat and vegetable that often taste much better than the produce sold in supermarkets. Moreover, their ethos is that food production must not take over your life, or be so demanding as to spoil the fun. This practical guide explains how they do it, and how you can do it as well. Garden Farming is essential reading for all those who want to engage in substantial domestic food production but who stop short of wishing to embrace the very demanding lifestyle choice of self-sufficiency.
