Practical Smallfarming in New Zealand
By Trisha Fisk

Enjoying a relaxed rural lifestyle on their own smallfarm is the dream of many New Zealanders. But running a few sheep and goats on a 10-acre block can be anything but relaxing if you don’t have farming skills and don’t understand, or even recognise, the many problems that can occur with livestock and plants.

This book has all the answers and is the most comprehensive of its kind. Specifically written for New Zealand conditions, it is filled with practical advice on everything that smallfarmers need to know to make a success of their dream: how to manage and care for livestock, from sheep to chooks and bees; how to manage pasture and trees; how to integrate the vegetable plot; how to site and build fences, drains, tracks and yards.

Clear, easily understood diagrams and photographs complement the brisk, no-nonsense text, making this book an essential reference tool for all smallfarmers, whether on 10 acres or 100.

Paperback, revised 1996, 216pages, good condition, fading in cover
