Pigs in Clover
By

Rating
This is the true story of a Londoner who gives up his job as an estate agent in the city, moves to the wilds of Exmoor, starts a smallholding and becomes self-sufficient, with a few bumps along the way. Simon's journey from urbanite to self-sufficient smallholder is brimming with incidents - some funny and some tragic - leading him to question Mother Nature, himself, the food he eats, and his role in it all. Which makes the transition from city life to self-sufficient smallholder slow, emotional and, for him, often confusing, but it is also beautiful, warming and laugh-out-loud funny. So if you would like to spend time with an accidental smallholder who completely changed one drunken night in Devon, then join Simon, his wife and their extended family as they learn the truth of what it takes to live a self-sufficient life, before eventually becoming as happy as the proverbial pigs in clover.

Reviews

It made me laugh and it made me think. I highly recommend it...it's a ten from Len! -- Len Goodman One of the most amusing writers I know * Country Smallholding magazine * Enchanting * Daily Mail * Simon Dawson's books should come with "scratch and sniff" pages containing the aroma of the Devon countryside at every turn... A witty, revealing heart-warming and honest account of his triumphs and travails. * Devon Life * James Herriot's 'All Creatures Great and Small' meets Stuart Maconie - funny, from the heart and utterly wonderful from start to finish. -- Jenny Selway * Daily Express *
