General Farming & Agriculture Books

Farming is much more than growing crops and keeping livestock. It is about working and living in the outdoor environment and also about managing your surroundings. Our books about general farming and agriculture offer a unique look at some essential outdoor skills such as hedge laying and pest control. These books are ideal for farmers, small-holders and for people who are studying land management topics.

Our agriculture books section also includes a number of books about general farm management. Whatever your level of expertise, you are sure to learn something new about working with your environment in order to help your farm or small-holding to flourish!
