ON MEDLOCK FARM by Henry Tetlow


Email this review


Not so practical as the first volume, We Farm for a Hobby and Make It Pay. These chapters are random addenda, on such varied subjects as night walks, pets, poultry, taxes, spraying, honesty, country points of view, country smells, biodynamic theory, and so on. Delightful reading, but more local in interest, and less stimulating. Buried deep in the text (most of which makes farming seem pretty simple), is a word of warning:- don't go in for it without capital or time. In other words they didn't make it pay all in a minute (or on a shoestring at the start). Of special interest to those who know the section near Philadelphia of which he talks so intimately.
