about this item

Practical guidance on reclaiming our food production at a time when food security is more relevant than ever The farms that are truly productive, sustainable, and resilient are the mixed, tightly integrated and low-input farms, which are complex and need a lot of skilled people to run them. These are the kinds of farms that we need more of, yet they are becoming increasingly rare as the market is dominated by large-scale industrial farms that are run in a way that keeps the cost down with little care for environmental or animal welfare. Drawing on his years of experience working in the farming industry, Colin Tudge shows us not only why we need a renaissance in our approach to agriculture, but also how we can get it started.Eight Steps Back to the Land will inspire anyone—from city streets or rural roots—to take an interest in the food chain and make a change.
