Food is, quite simply, fundamental to life. Artist Chris Drury and poet-novelist Kay Syrad have collaborated to produce a gorgeously illustrated, prose-poetry take on a group of West Dorest farmers and the changes they have had to make in their approach to working the land.

Ever wondered exactly what life as a farmer is like? It's a life of adaption and hard work, which Chris and Kay capture through a combination of their fine imagery and poetry. What does their work entail? How does sustainability impact farming? And what does the complexities of food production and our relationship with the land mean? Throughout the book you'll find answers to these questions, plus many more.

The imagery and photography, along with the knowledge of the creativity and resilience of organic farming illustrated throughout, makes this a must-read to gain a firm appreciation of what impact the land can have on our lives.
