Product Description
 
Beautifully written description of the harsh realities and the joyous moments of farm life, from a writer whose farm has been in the same family for five generations.Beautifully written description of the harsh realities and the joyous moments of farm life, from a writer whose farm has been in the same family for five generations.
Tim Saunders is a farmer and a writer. He describes the seasons: Summer, with shearing, slaughter, crop harvest and conservation; Autumn and its floods, trading stock, drenching and dagging; Winter, the maize harvest and lambing; and Spring, with docking, pet sheep and weaning.

He explores how a farm that has been in the same family for five generations functions, and describes the everyday lives of farmers and their enduring love of the land and the animals they work with.

This is powerful and poignant writing that outlines a lifestyle often taken for granted, and goes some way to explaining why farmers love what they do and are also conflicted by what they do.
