Iain Tolhurst (Tolly) has been at the forefront of the UK organic farming movement for over 40 years. His 8-hectare farm has won many awards the most recent being “soil farmer of the year”. His most recent book “Back to the Land” is a chronological compilation of many of the articles and papers that he has written during his long career, and gives a fascinating account of the way his farm and business has developed with much emphasis on soil management. His earlier work co-written with Jenny Hall has become a text book for many especially the newly emerging young people keen to get into Stockfree organic food production.
