“I’ve just been enjoying turning the pages of Unlikely Heroes. What a wonderful selection of people and range of “real farming” enterprises around the country! All my congratulations”
Ruth West, Campaign for Real Farming and Co-founder of the Oxford Real Farming Conference
Unlikely Heroes is the book tracing the agrarian renaissance of the Feeding Body and Soul project.
“A website is a great thing and a fabulous space for setting out a story or documentation with very few limits to size. It doesn’t, though, compare to the physicality and emotional contact with a book with which you can curl up with and become engrossed. A book somehow seems much more tangible, more personal, more engaging a record than a website, even with its limits as to size. The book of the Feeding Body and Soul project – entitled Unlikely Heroes to reflect the fact that everything depends on the people – documents over 70 of my visits, each with a double page spread, and in so doing traces the calendar year across the small-scale, sustainable farming scene in England and Wales.”
The book has over 150 pages of full colour images, plus there is a Foreword from Colin Tudge, the founder of the Oxford Real Farming Conference and also an author on environmental and food issues. His most recent book Six Steps Back to the Land is very much a call to arms for small-scale farming.
Stephen Devlin from the New Economics Forum has provided an insightful essay specifically for the book on the wider economic issues around food.
