Scenes from a Smallholding by Chas Griffin
Book DescriptionIn 1982 the Griffins left the security of suburbia to grow garlic in West Wales. This is a funny and sometimes touching, warts-and-all account of their first three years: of how they learned lambing and marketing and ploughing and hay-making: and of the dung-sodden joys of milking and the surreal terrors of bee-keeping. Be amused. Be very amused. Scenes from a Smallholding is by turns challenging, touching, and informative; but above all, it is very funny.
