#BookReview for Sustainable Smallholding by Lorraine Turnbull

My review for Sustainable Smallholding by Lorraine Turnbull, 5/5 stars. It also earns a Pink Quill Book Pick badge (click here for more information.)

Living off the land has always been something that has fascinated me, and Lorraine Turnbull takes you by the hand and guides you through all the pitfalls and joys of owning a smallholding. I loved her no-nonsense tone and dry British humour, and she makes every page interesting (even when she’s talking about tax forms and the various licences you need!).

Full of great advice, she also gives useful tips on how you can make the most of any part of your land. Her passions are bee-keeping and cider-making, which she also used to teach, and her authority and enthusiasm come through with every word.

Interspersed with case studies of other smallholdings, and anecdotes from her own experiences, this is a great book for anyone thinking of sustainable living or actually doing it. Even if you don’t have a smallholding, she gives lots of advice for sustainable living that anyone can do, no matter how big or small their garden.

A fascinating read that I highly recommend.
