Get to the heart of British life – Land of Plenty is out today!
Congratulations to Charlie Pye-Smith on the publication of his fascinating new book Land of Plenty: A Journey Through the Fields & Foods of Modern Britain!
Our farmers are facing the most uncertain future for a generation given the decision to withdraw from the European Union and its Common Agricultural Policy. In Land of Plenty, Charlie travels the length and breadth of Britain to provide a rich and timely portrait of this essential aspect of our national heritage: farming. Covering the dairy industry in Somerset and Gloucestershire; beef in the Scottish Borders; sheep in North Yorkshire; pigs and poultry in East Anglia and Hampshire; vegetables in the Fens and Norfolk; fruit in Essex and the West Country; and wild game in the Lake District and Pennines, this is a colourful and rewarding travelogue that gets to the very heart of modern British life.
