The Fat of the Land by John Seymour
A record of one family’s determination to be self-sufficient in food by growing and preserving produce. The 1950’s journal of animal husbandry and horticulture has become an bible for many who would like to diverge from modern life and offers a personal, practical and optimistic vision of a less-mechanized and less polluting world, one that works in harmony with nature, rather than against it. Seymour goes on to document their life and struggles on the land in chapters on cows, pigs, vegetables and wild food in charming prose.
This new edition comes complete with Sally Seymour’s original illustrations, a foreword by Anne Seymour and a new introduction by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.
