Farming in Wales 1936-2011
Richard Moore-Colyer Other books by Richard Moore-Colyer
This book traces the development of Welsh agriculture in the context of the Farm Business Survey over the past 75 years. It is the story of steady progress from craft to science and from trade to business among an occupational group whose vocation has been praised, encouraged, ignored and even vilified in equal measure. It is the story of the Aberystwyth-based Farm Business Survey which has been a potent force for change. But it is also the story of a nation's only real capital, the farmed land and those who nurture it.
