Description

‘One of those enthusiasts whose enthusiasm is hard to resist . . . Always beguiling’ Daily Mail

‘Hugely inspiring even when it is most bonkers’ Sarah Bakewell, New Statesman

‘A combination of almanac, commonplace book and diary, this is a tasty oddity . . . Richly entertaining’ Independent

As the pandemic has caused us all to re-evaluate our lives, becoming more self-reliant and dwelling in closer harmony with nature have emerged as important priorities. Many of us have decided to up sticks and leave the city behind for a less frenetic existence in the country. Whether you’ve already made your move, or are dreaming of doing so one day, this is the book for you.

Covering beekeeping, poultry rearing, pig farming, bread-making, wood-chopping, fire-laying, bartering and much more, How to Live in the Country is the perfect source of inspiration for old hand and beginners alike: useful, informative but also refreshingly honest and realistic.

Tom Hodgkinson draws on the wisdom of an eclectic range of thinkers and writers as he guides us through each month of the year, giving lists of tasks for both garden and animal husbandry, offering tips and shortcuts, and weaving in stories about his own experience of raising a young family in rural Devon.
