Sally Urwin and her husband Steve own High House Farm in Northumberland, which they share with Mavis the sheepdog, one very fat pony, and many, many sheep. Set in a beautiful, wild landscape and in use for generations, it's the perfect setting for Sally's - sometimes brutally - honest and charming account of farming life. From stock sales to lambing sheds, and days spent out in the fields through driving snow and hot summer days, A FARMER'S DIARY reveals the highs, lows and hard work involved in making a living from the land, through all four seasons of the year. Filled with grit and humour, newborn lambs and local characters, this is an enlightening read for anyone who has ever wondered what it's like on the other side of the fence.

Harvey Devoe (1828-1914) farmed most of his life, and kept a diary for one significant year of that life, 1861. The diary, transcribed here in its entirety, gives a day-by-day view of the life and hard work of a mid nineteenth entury farmer, and the coming of a national tragedy. Illustrated with family pictures and annotated for a clearer view, Devoe’s words are both humorous and sarcastic, and although brief, give a unique look into a vanished world.

This is an extraordinary document, rediscovered in the 1930s, written by a young woman who lives and breathes in its pages.

Behind every good farmer is a great farmer's wife though the farmer in question may not always appreciate this! Having been married to John for over 30 years, Bobbi Mothersdale knows this more than anyone.

If you are a farmer's wife, you will find this an unputdownable must-read that you will want to share with all your friends.Though be warned - you might need to prise it away from your husband and his friends first. ..

"Had I known that fateful morning what lay ahead, what I would trigger, I maybe would have hidden away as normal. I have kept away from my husband's family for my safety and to avoid trouble for many years. As the tractor sped towards me at high-speed, my life flashed before me......." Thus begins this compelling and true life account of a Derbyshire couple's fight for peace and happiness, a pursuit continually thwarted by vindictive in-laws and other corrupt, greedy people. Ginny has kept a daily account of events since she was told of her impending eviction from the world-renowned Chatsworth Estate. The diary provides a full account of the violence and hostility she and her husband have faced trying to secure a roof and security for themselves and the animals in their care. It recounts the expensive legal path the couple have had to furrow to claim what is rightfully theirs - including a livelihood which Ginny's husband had built up over forty years. Every word is true and recorded as it happened. You will be grateful for the grace of God that you have not faced the siege conditions to which Ginny and Alan have been subjected, since being ousted from their marital home and farm. Be warned, you will be aghast at man's inhumanity to others in rural England. Happily, you will also be invigorated by the tremendous spirit of a remarkable woman who will not be broken. Your hearts will be warmed by this couple's generosity of spirit, love of animals and their embrace of the simple joys in our wonderful Derbyshire countryside.
