There is a huge social change with more and more people wanting to live a simple, more self-sufficient, make it yourself life. With lawns and flower gardens being turned over to vegetable production and keeping chickens being adopted by suburbia with the more adventurous looking to keeping other livestock such as pigs, sheep, bees and goats urban farming is becoming less of a dream and more of a reality for many. The Urban Farmer's Handbook is the bible for all those wanting to grab a slice of the good life without having to move to the country. Paul Peacock, joint editor of Home Farmer magazine and self-proclaimed 'self-sufficient in a semi enthusiast, examines all angles of urban farming from how beekeeping without unsettling the neighbours to keeping pigs on a small acreage. Packed with practical advice including the legal and welfare implications, the potential problems and the joys The Urban Farmer's Handbook gives good, solid advice on animal husbandry, allotments and making the most of your produce to improve the quality of your life. In short, says the author "if you can eat it, ou can grow it and cook it."
