About this book

Originally printed in 1982 this thirtieth anniversary edition brings back into print this seminal work written by John Seymour, the key figure of the 20th Century self-sufficiency movement. Full of practical advice; from hanging a fence to draining land, from planting trees to hay-making this is a classic reference on land management.

Written principally for those who have a small piece of countryside, John Seymour provides practical advice on how to husband it and keep it in good heart for future generations – advice not found in any of his other books. Lore of the Land has detailed information on the care of trees, woodland, meadows, ponds, hedges, fences and walls, using organic fertilisers and natural weed prevention techniques with practical guides covering every aspect of land management including how to make hay, how to make a gate, how to drain a field, how to puddle a clay pond, how to cope with rabbits, how to mix livestock and meadow, how to fell a tree and much, much more.
