Take my tip - it pays to read The Smallholder.
I've won quite a few prizes in the last year or so - but, frankly, I couldn't have done it without The Smallholder. It's true I've had to slog at it pretty hard, but you can work your head off without much result if you don't go the right way about things. And that's where The Smallholder comes in. There's no paper like it for good commonsense advice on all branches of food production. It's packed with practical hints by experts which put you plumb on the right lines and keep you there. Yes, take it from me - if you want prizewinning results, it will pay you to read The Smallholder.
Covers Vegetables, Fruit, Flowers, Poultry, Rabbits, Bees, Pigs, Goats, Farming and all Country Topics. Free Advice Service.
