Life on the Old Farm

This little book by Tom Quin, author of Tales of the Old Railwaymen, has, between its old time covers, fascinating reminiscences garnered from farming folk across Britain.

Many of these were told by oldsters who were the last of a kind, those who knew how farming was done on these islands throughout our history, before the great fields and the great tractors, the fertilisers and the battery sheds changed everything.

As a dip-in book or a cover-to-cover book, either way it's one to savour and to buy another as a gift.
