Kate illustrates all of this (the key to excellent farming) with allusions to cricket and football, with easy-to-recall acronyms, with real-life case studies, and most of all with practical advice, all of which help to convey the importance of the choices that are open to farmers in the face of things they cannot control.
And that’s perhaps the most important message from this book: that being an ‘excellent farmer ’ is about making choices – choices about crops, about money, about people, and, ultimately, about themselves. Farmers, like people in other walks of life, don’t have to be excellent. But if they want to be, Kate’s book will show them how.
